    I have not been able to find a Windows 7 newsgroup and would appreciate
    suggestions.

    I am having a problem with "Administrator Permission to change attributes"
    and need some help.

    Go to alt.windows7.general. You won't find it on the Microsoft
    newsgroups. Microsoft is nuking all their groups so you'll have to use
    another news server like news.eternal-september.org or news.aioe.org
    (both free) to access it. When you go there, be sure and put Ping Frank
    in your subject field as he is the expert on Windows 7.

    becoming and is already a children's play zone with all the crap that is created by
    all of you .

    That is not a newsgroup, it's a web-based forum.

    There are no Microsoft-hosted newsgroups for Win7 (and all of their other
    newsgroups are going away, also, unfortunately), but there is
    alt.windows7.general. If your ISP does not carry it, some other sites do
    such as eternal-september.org and aioe.org.

    Microsoft has planned to drop all of their newsgroups, if not already
    done. They want "us" to use the web based forums or their new NNTP
    connector for those web forums.

    Alias,

    You certainly nailed this one.
    The Microsoft Win 7 forum is less than useless.
    Buy a good book and become as self sufficient as you can.
    You sure as Hell won't find solutions on the Win 7 forum for your
    problems.

    Maybe Microsoft is doing this to do their part in helping bring down
    unemployment because more techs will be called if the users can't get
    solutions on line. Course, where will the techs go to find solutions?

    alt.windows7.general on most of the big NNTP servers. There will never
    be one here, MS is getting rid of NNTP by Oct. 1.
