My computer crashed and I fitted the HD to a net one. Thereafter I get the Microsoft Feed SYnchronization error repeatedly.
Only that it is a nuisance interrupting my sessions.
its used for windows activation - ie new license keys. Hard to bypass when you cant log on or dont have the original key
Microsoft Feeds Synchronization task found on PCs with Internet Explorer 7 and which automatic RSS Feeds synchronization turned ON. This task starts up at the intervals specified in Internet Explorer 7 and checks for updates to your RSS feeds. Once it has updated your RSS feeds, it terminates.

I have netwok monitoring software that watches over data going in and out. ever since I've installed this software its been just to block it. Its spyware, take ownership and delete it.
The more Microsoft keeps sending updates, the more junk you get on your computer. This is one of them... totally worthless distraction
