No ... I am not so sure we 'all' ARE having the problem you describe.

I suggest you do a FRESH install and re-load groups.
Who is your UseNet service provider?

Bug Data2:

Perhaps one of your configuration files is corrupted. Uninstalling and reinstalling will not remove the configuration files. There is no configuration data stored in the registry.

If you are using 4.0 or later, you can hold down F12 when starting the application and it will ask if you wish to load your configuration files. Start with not loading the General Settings File by answering No and it will launch NewsLeecher with the default settings. Immediately quit NewsLeecher to save the default settings to disk. Then launch NewsLeecher again and it should start up with default settings and hopefully no error messages. If you get more errors, try the same procedure for the other setting files.

If using an earlier version, you will need to manually remove the setup.dat file. You can find the location and explanation of each configuration file at viewtopic.php?t=6766

If that doesn't resolve the problem, try moving all of the .dat files out of the configuration data directory and run NewsLeecher again. If there error goes away then it was one of those files. You could move a few of the files back in until you find the corrupt file.
Please be aware of and use the following pages...
Services Status Page : SuperSearch and Usenet Access server status, retention, server load, indexing time, etc.
Support Request Form : Use this if you have a problem with billing or account status. The forum is only for NewsLeecher application issues.

If a file is corrupt it should always cause problem. My problem is random few days without problem and bang. I delete the cue causing problem it's working for few days and one days server and/or group are empty.

Now i removed every thing cleanup registry and deleted all file in C:\Users\[current user]\Application Data\Roaming\NewsLeecher and instaled an old 5.0 beta 3 that i found so far all is good i will wait a few days if it's ok a will make a full backup of C:\Users\[current user]\Application Data\Roaming\NewsLeecher and install the latest beta and see
