Deobfuscation engine question

Hey. Any ideas how I can tell if this works ? Is it automatic or do I need to do anything ? I see newsgroups with thousands of garbled posts, should those be visible with what they are ? I am a bit confused. For instance, I went to alt.binaries.british.drama and 95% of the posts are just jumbled tex...

Re: Newsleecher software will be dead within a year

Now that NL has got the results filter back and can deobfuscate search results, I think it is really good again. I was a bit worried last year, but Beta 2 has restored my faith in the software.

Re: Side by side Install with 7?

I have managed it. I had the same issue at first of it not connecting to the servers (I installed 8 to /newsleecher8 directory so I can run 7 & 8 on the same Windows installation, I then made a shortcut of 7 from the original /newsleecher directory). All I did to get 8 working was clicked the "conne...

Re: 8.0 Beta 1: *REALLY* miss the results filter tool!

it does appear to be missing yes, that is such a useful tool. Luckily I installed Newsleecher in a different directory, so I can go back to 7 while keeping 8 active at the same time to update. But 8 looks very promising, once it has the results filter sorted then I will move on to 8.

Re: Is beta9 actually beta10 ?

Shame they don't have the beta name in the filename as you have to install just to see what it is and if it is right.

Re: Help needed on Repair & Extract folder

Got exactly the same problem and came on here to ask. I have just reinstalled Newsleecher and I used to have the download folder and extract folder totally different, but it won't let me alter the extract folder. The overwrite option seems to only work for groups you are subscribed to. Anyone have a...

.....storage drive. Please note this message is wrong, my drive is fine, I did a speed test on it. This message has been happening over the last few days, I download a few MB and then this message appears, every time, and it stays on this message without carrying on.

Re: Newsleecher not working

I seem to be having speed and connection issues with some servers. Astraweb EU SSL works for 1 minute then just cuts out. Astraweb US SSL works but is 2MB slower that it should be. Astraweb standard (non-SSL) works but is 3 to 4MB slower than it should be. Premiumize.Me works but is 4MB slower than ...

Re: Changing what CTRL does

EDIT : I don't believe this, it is now working again as it should. Is this due to the latest update fixing it ? I just updated again.

Changing what CTRL does

Not sure if something changed but I can no longer choose supersearch articles I want via the keyboard, if I want various ones I used to click "CTRL" so I could choose various different ones that weren't next to each other. Now when I press it I notice it cycles through all the different windows. I h...

Search within a RAR set

With a certain web based NG provider's search (starts with an E) it searches for the actual file names within the RARs, as loads of archives are misnamed or not even named for obvious reasons. So many times I have had to resort to using that search instead of SuperSearch, but I would prefer to stick...

Any idea what is happening ? Might not be a NL problem

Any idea why the below problem happens on ANYTHING I try and download ? Even freeware, linux and demos ? Everything. Yet if I try another server, such as Easynews, it is fine. But I can't see any uproar about Astraweb being down, so I am confused. This has happened for the last 2 days. The below exa...

I am 99% sure this is a DMCA removal issue (the insanely fast speed downloading issue definitely is, the corrupt issue may or may not be). Best test would be to download various things from a newsgroup like alt.binaries.freeware. If you download demos or freeware from that group and never get the er...
