Outlook Express problem

Ive got OE 6.00.28 etc.  I use is for email and newsgroup access.  I used to be registered under a server called - i forget - i think it was newsfree-cash-serv2, something like that, but for some reason, every 12 months, it shuts down and I need to set up a new server.  So this time I went to newzbot.com to find a large, and good server and found news4.euro.net - got it set up, but when I select the option "reset list" it starts counting, up, up, up, to around 36,000 but then it stops.  I do a control/alt/del to see the status, and it has "not responding" and I must select "end task" to get out.  This happens every time.  Whats going on ? How can it be fixed?  Alternatives are ok too. I want a server that has a high # of groups (better chance my group is on it), and I want it reliable.  I presently use google.com to post my newgroup entries, but it would be great if I can post directly to my newgroup from Outlook Express.  Any help is appreciated.

I checked it out - i dont think it applies.  Im not running dual browsers, just Outlook Express.  Trying to find out why it locks-up or how to fix it. Any other ideas are appreciated.

Fixed the problem myself. According to the web site below, they referred to a file named "Folders.dbx" that was the cause of a slow down in performance in OE.  I used their suggested to delete the file and that seemed to work.  I started the reset and it worked just fine.

Now, how to I close this out without loosing the points?
