Using experts-exchange to look at old questions

I have registered (at present as a non-paying member) with Experts exchange.  Does this entitle me to look up a subject and see suggested solutions?

My particular query had been to discover if there was any solution under Windows 2000 to the problem of other applications running slowly whena  DOS application has caused ntvdm to fire up.  I didn't really want to bother an expert at this stage, just have a look to see if other subscribers had this problem.

But when I get to the screen of topics, I get the prompt to "Sign up for VIP access".  I don't necessarily mind doing that, but feel that I should check to see what sort of information is available on experts-exchange.

Does the ordinary member have any right to search your database?

Thanks.  Andrew Mozley

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sunray, I'm not sure that's true.  And Experts Input is also not the place to ask this question, that's an experts-only topic area.

AndrewMosley, I suggest you post at  Ask your question, and also post a link back to this question so a moderator can delete it and refund your points.
