SBNews will read Yenc files and is cheaper than Agent click here

There are a host of newsreaders out there which will support yEnc decoding many of which will give you a 30 day free trial on which to evaluate their product I use Newsleecher and find quite user friendly. happy hunting

Reading your problem again i see that you already have Agent Once you have down loaded a file in yEnc form change the filenane to****.jpg
****.mp3 ****.avi etc this shold then open in your media viewer.

try right clicking the header in the newsgroup
and "save target" or "save as" somthing like 001.jpg 001.mp3 the header should say what type of file it is (ie: Cliff in Clouds jpg yEnc)
