Newsleecher hangs and stops when downloading all headers in large groups.
We have many users contacting our support with this issue.


Please disable all your local antivirus/security scanners and try again. We have had many users reporting this problem with scanners blocking it. Remember that we always recommend using antivirus - so only disable it to test!
Please whitelist the Newsleecher foldesr located in %Appdata% & program files folder/ (program files (x86)) or contact your antivirus provider if you have the problem.
For now it's confirmed a problem with these:

- Avast
- Avg
- F-secure
- Bitdefender
- Kaspersky
- Norton


How to Whitelist appdata folder:
Whitelist: Go to %appdata%\newsleecher folder.
Copy the path to the whitelist in your antivirus:

path examples:
C:\Users\MywindowsLoginName\AppData\Roaming\NewsLeecher
C:\Program Files (x86)
C:\Program Files

Important note:
Make sure the download destination folders aren't setup to this location!
