Initalization of RSS feed support failed.RSS feeds could not be update

Win Live POP3 Mail RSS Error
"Initalization of RSS feed support failed. RSS feeds could not be updated."

This RSS feed error just started popping up when I access Win Live POP3 Mail.
I have no interest in RSS feeds & never enabled them, How do I stop this pop-up?

Please see images below.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

And I thank this forum for all the past help you have given me.

First I would try to repair WLM. Through Programs and Features, right click Windows Live Essential, and choose the Repair option

Programs and Features - Uninstall or Change a Program

If no help, navigate to these locations and delete the Feeds or Your feeds folders

C:\Users\(User name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\WLM

C:\Users\(User name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\

C:\Users\(User name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\

See if that doesn't fix it. If you wanted feeds. we'd take a different path. A Guy
