OT Newsreader for Outlook ??

Sorry for the off topic post, but I have tried elsewhere, and cannot get any info.
On my new computer, I have Windows 7, which does not include Outlook Express, which I have on this old computer, which will be given away soon to a needy person.
On my new system, I use Outlook for my email, but it does not include a newsreader. I need to find an independent newsreader, something that is basic, and easy to set up. My server for newsgroups is localnet.com.
Can someone here please recommend a very good, easy interface, basic newsreader, preferably one for free ? (Don't mind paying, if there is a superior one offered for sale....).
I know that newsgroups seem to be dying, but I just do not enjoy forums as I find them clumsy and a bit non-productive, and would like to stay on a number of newsgroups that are very helpful to me, but I need some good recommendations on a basic newsreader that (hopefully) would operate similar to what Outlook Express provides for me on my old machine.
Thanks again for allowing this OT post, and I hope that someone can help me on this.
James
