Internet explorer not updating rss feeds
When Microsoft released the Windows 8.1 Update, IT feathers were ruffled by Microsoft's decision to make it a compulsory update: without it, Windows 8.1 systems would no longer receive security fixes.As spotted by Computerworld's Gregg Keizer, Microsoft is applying the same rules, at least in part, to Windows 7.You’ll probably want to also empty your Deleted Items folder after removing the feeds.When an RSS Feed is broken in Microsoft Outlook, the easiest way to repair is to recreate it. Microsoft Outlook 2007 experienced continuous problems with RSS Feeds; however, this appears to have been resolved in Outlook 2010.For the next couple of months, Microsoft is actually still making security fixes for the original Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7 release, but anyone who wants to use them will have to either download and install them manually, or install them through Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), Windows Intune, or System Center Configuration Manager. This will give conservative corporations only a limited amount of time to actually test and validate the updated Internet Explorer 11. The same is true for most Firefox users as well; security updates and feature updates are wrapped up together, and you'll need the latter to get the former (the exception being the rarely used Extended Support Releases, that give security fixes the features). Microsoft's general approach was to avoid adding new features to existing versions.For any other Windows browser, this wouldn't be unusual. The company has, from time to time, added features to Internet Explorer without bumping the version number, but these versions were indicated in other ways.Now you can uncheck the item “Sync RSS Feeds to the Common Feed List”.Now that you’ve disabled the Sync feature, you can delete all of the feeds from under the RSS Feeds folder.
When you add an RSS Feed to any program that uses the Common Feed List, that RSS Feed is available in all programs automatically.RSS Feeds can become unsynchronized for a number of reasons, or may even be broken for just one session. RSS Feeds are stored in a folder titled "RSS Subscriptions" in your Outlook folder list.

Rebecca Johnson has been a public-sector technical trainer since 1996.Along with the new Developer Channel and public development status tracker, Microsoft is starting to develop Internet Explorer in a way that's a lot closer to its competition.With the new mingling of security and feature updates, perhaps it's time for Redmond to make things a little more explicit and follow the other thing competing browsers do: wildly bump the major version number each time a few minor features are added.
