Windows 7: How to get rid of a 'ghost' RSS-feed task in Outlook?

How to get rid of a 'ghost' RSS-feed task in Outlook?


Even after my recent pc crash and complete installation of all my programs, my Outlook email has an annoying leftover that I have not been able to remove:
In the past I used one or two RSS-feeds, but long ago I removed them.
But now, still, on every send/receive mail job, Outlook tries to do something with these non-existent RSS-tasks and gives error messages every time.
How can I get rid of them?

Thanks for helping,

You haven't mentioned which version of Outlook you are using but the website below is for Outlook 2007 so you could try it for other versions to see if it fixes your problem.
