Hi

I have Windows 7 with Outlook 2007 installed.

When I try and subscribe to an RSS feed using Outlook 2007, Outlook stops working.

I have tried different RSS feeds so it is not a feed problem. One of the feeds that this occurs with is http://www.stuff.co.nz/rss/ 

Problem signature:

  Additional Information 3:      0a9e

Can anyone shed some light on this?

"Outlook 2007 crashes when I subscribe to an RSS Feed" sounds like going to the doctor and saying "My arm hurts when I move it like this." - Well don't move it that way and it won't hurt... in your case no RSS Feeds and you'll be fine!

;-) Hope you don't mind I'm feeling funny this morning!

I have run into this on a few machines and received almost identical events as you have posted (being the build version / time as difference). I tried futzing with it for a good bit of time before I chose to uninstall the package > reboot > run ccleaner on the registry, etc. > reboot > reinstall with different media = joy! That cleared it up for me.

Maybe this will work for you as well. I have to say since I never actually 'fixed it' and rather just cleaned out all traces and reinstalled I don't know if this will help you or not. Typically, I prefer to give answer type answers but sometimes I also find it's simply not worth tracking down if there is a way to just get it working.

It looks like valid XML/RSS to me.  I had no problem at all reading the feed with Firefox.

Apparently some of the plug-ins are implicated.  See if any of these results apply to you.
