    You will need a News Reader like Grabit or Newsleecher, as well as access to usenet:

    News Rover should be fine, however it's features are rather simplistic when compared to newsleecher or grabit. Or at least the version I tested of it was.

    Either will be ok though.

    I got your PM Tony and replied to it. If you still have any more questions just ask in this thread, I'll keep an eye out.

    edit: I merged the two threads, no need for two.

    1. Download Grabit

    2. Setup for Usenet. Usually you can get free limited acces to your own ISP's news server. Usually news.[insertISPhere].net or .com.

    3. Double click NZB file, Grabit should open it.

    4. Wait for it to finish Downloading

    5. Get a program like WinRAR or WinZip and extract the r01, r02, etc... files.

    6. Right click on r01 and 'extract here'.

    7. If file is incomplete use a program like QuickPar to 'repair' it. Install QuickPar, double click the PAR2 file. Repair. Then try extracting again.

    8. If none of this makes since, I tried.

    The user appears to have the flag of St George therefore they will be very lucky to have a proper binary ISP server. Many UK ISP's do offer text only groups. I am afraid it is highly likelly they will have to pay for a premium NSP.

    I've been using Newsrover for years; although some think it's 'simple', in fact the programability of it is supurb. I spent a fair amount of time when I first got it, programming up a lot of the 'special features' that now I take for granted; every once in a while I'll look at something 'newer', but they simply don't hold a candle to how I've got rover set up. Perhaps something else out there has the same flexibility, but it would be like re-inventing the wheel for me.
