Strange msfeeds*.* self-scheduled


M

Marek Kalisz

I have some scheduled by myself tasks. Today I discovered that I have also
something like
User_Feed_Synchronization-{B675BB44-7EBB-4...-4A4D-907E8197-81971EDAA4F6}
(periods mark charcters I didn't catch). It has a remark "multiple
schedules" but is scheduled only once every day. Properties shows:
"Windows\system32\msfeedssync.exe.sync"
In the system32 subdirectory I founded a few files msfeeds*.*. Their
properties shows a legit company - Microsoft.
I also looked into Microsoft resources searching for those files. Search
didn't find any mentions of those. So, what are they and for what
reason/function?
Any help...

msfeedssync.exe has something to do with Internet Explorer 7 Beta.

User_Feed_Synchronization-{08191A17-E708-4B0E-9015-1F6D3CABEAD6}" ->
launches: "C:\WINDOWS\system32\msfeedssync.exe sync" [MS]

"User_Feed_Synchronization-{4B6D7030-2632-41DA-AD17-740A3BF8F0B8}" ->
launches: "C:\WINDOWS\system32\msfeedssync.exe sync" [MS]

That's the problem with cross-posting.

I said the same thing you did, more or less.

"A google search for msfeedssync.exe.sync and msfeedssync.exe seems to
suggest it's legitimate and might be part of IE 7 and its RSS "Feeds"
feature. Any chance you're using IE 7?"

Sorry for cross-posting. I'm new to MS newsgroups and subscribed just to a
few. Thanks for attention. Foloow up with the next post in
help_and_support.

No biggie! If you're using the MS web newsgroup interface, I think it's
hard not to cross-post when you post to more than one newsgroup.

Crossposting = good. Multiposting=bad. This is multiposting. ;-)
