E-Mail works fine.

Newsgroups appear to download but no messages are readable.
View options have been checked several times
Attempted to reinstall Outlook Express by changing value in Registry from 1 to 0 and then attempt download.
Will not download SP1.
Have reinstalled XP and still has not solved this problem.
Any suggestions what to do?

Have you recreated the server information and checked if it would work ?

After your news messages are downloaded , do you atleast see the title or anything related to that ?

Looks like this might help try and post back

Start --> Run  --> Typein "regsvr32 inetcomm.dll" and press "enter"
