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

you can get 10000 points to get the premiem service free which is quiet easy to do.  It should only take about a week if your here at the right time and go to more threads for more chance of getting answers.

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 http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/.  Ask your question, and also post a link back to this question so a moderator can delete it and refund your points.

p.s. don't accept those comments as an answer, just ask deletion and refund as the other experts stated.

Thanks everyone.  Sorry I'm new here.  I'll go to Community_support and also try the Google search.  I know this was not a technical question, but thanks for your time.  I've tried to split the points, but cannot get that option to work.
