can think of is that updates from Microsoft have done something to
my OS that make it not work now.
I tried downloading a new copy but it won't install.
Agent allows you to kill all cross posted messages and also
has kill file capability of filtering out posters by name or
topic so they won't appear on your screen again unless
you choose to again allow them.
What newsreaders don't offer that function ?
Yes, I think they do.
But not cross-post filtering. Agent is the only newsreader that I
know of that does that. It didn't always have this feature and that
is why, before they added it, I used Nfilter to kill cross posts
so they would not show up on my screen.
My regular Windows live mail (Windows 7) has a filter option built in, but the way it works is this: you have to subscribe to the offending group, the source of the Xposts. Then you go into the setup and ask it to delete anything from that group. You must remain subscribed to it, in order for it to work. If someone Xposts from other groups, you will still see them.
You can also block any particular individual sender, and you won't see anything from them.
Better to just click guys like that "as read" than to keep building filters for a zillion phony names.
