Helping my parent with Windows XP version 5.1. I am told that suddenly the
prompt cursor changed. When I come over to check, the prompt curser is a
1/4" black box. I tried to change it, based on what I found in Help, by
opening the command prompt window and right clicking on title bar to change
cursor options, but it is already on small and changing it does not do
anything. It is extremely challanging to edit typing. Any suggestions
greatly appreciated.

Agent (or Free Agent) allows me to delete my own messages from the
newsgroup.

That way *you* can't see them, but everyone else still can.
