I am running windows XP pro /Firefox browser ...and for a few days this message keeps popping up every few minutes.
"Microsoft Feeds Synchronization has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

I have turned off the windows firewall...
I did google the problem and a few people said to do the following in IE:
tools/internet options/content/settings..then untick the automatic feed thingy.
I can't do that however, because the "settings" box is greyed out.

Can you help please?
Regards

You are looking at the settings button in the Feeds section at the bottom, and not under Content Advisor? Note that you won't have a feeds section if you have not installed IE7.

Though if you haven't installed IE7, you shouldn't have the Microsoft Feeds Synchronization software. If you installed IE7 then uninstalled it, it may not have completely uninstalled. In that case, you may need to re-install IE7 then uninstall it again.

Thank you so much. I actually suddenly remember that since I had run the windows repair yesterday, that ie7 would need to be reinstalled.
So I did..and voila..no pesky messages.
Thanks so very much for your response.

You're Welcome!

Yeah, if you did a repair install of windows that would do it, as that would overwrite some of the IE7 files with IE6 files but wouldn't uninstall anything, like the Microsoft Feeds program, which wouldn't be happy with the IE6 version files.

If your issue has been resolved you (and ONLY you) can mark this thread Solved by using the Mark Solved button at the Top Left of this thread (above the first post) :)
