  • The RSS feeds to which you subscribe are not listed in Internet Explorer 7.
  • You cannot subscribe to RSS feeds in Internet Explorer 7.


CAUSE

These issues may occur because of one of the following reasons:

  • The feed storage file is corrupted.
  • An issue exists with the user profile.
  • An issue exists with a browser add-on.

  1. Start Internet Explorer 7.

    1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then point to System Tools.
    2. Click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).



    Note If the issue is resolved in this mode, use the Manage Add-ons option that is available in the Tools menu to isolate the specific browser add-ons that are causing the issue.

    5. Verify that the RSS feed from a trusted Web site is working correctly.
    6. Import the feeds from the file that you exported in step 5a earlier in this section. These are the feeds to which you previously subscribed.

      Note For more information about how to import RSS feeds, see the "How to import or export RSS feeds" section.
