Are you directly accessing news.msnews.com, or are you reading the
groups from your ISP's list? If you have access to the MS news
server, then the only thing I can say is keep trying (It has been up
and down here lately). On the other hand, if you have been reading
these groups through your ISP, then your ISP is either not updating
the groups or has taken them off their server.
