You don't need to go to the registry to delete a newsgroup...

On the toolbar, select newsgroups, select the "subscribed" tab, right click on the newsgroup you want to remove and select "unsubscribe."

I'm hoping this is correct. I'm working from memory...

I have tried this to no avail on and off the internet.
I get a message cannot delete default server,which it is not.
so I thought maybe the answer would be in the registry.

You said delete a newsgroup, not news server.

Open the Tools Menu, Options, Servers Tab. Select a different news server and make it the default news server (even if this one is not the default, confirm this for your poor, brainless computer). Now try to delete the server you want to get rid of.

Oops! Skip, by accepting my answer, although it did not solve your problem, your question has now been moved to the Previously Answered Questions category and will not receive any further input.

Soooo, we better see if we can find an answer for you...

Start the registry editor by typing "regedit" (no quotes) in the Run command line in the Start Menu.

Navigate to

HKEY_USERS\.Default\Software\Microsoft\Internet Mail and News\News

On the left side, delete the entire key with the server name that you are trying to get rid of.

In the above path name, substitute .default with your user name if you are using Windows User Profiles and cannot find the news server name under the .default user.
--------------------------------

Sorry, I didn't provide this solution first. Whenever possible, it is best to make changes elsewhere. Editing the registry should always be a last resort...

By the way, in the future, do not accept an answer until your problem is resolved...
