I found this:
http://windowslivehelp.com/thread.aspx?threadid=850d1bed-76c6-418d-b9d7-181e2e473073

Is your Internet Explorer set as the default browser?

have deleted as suggested but the error message still appears

IE is not my default browser, but as i understand that is required only if i add RSS feeds

Yes only then.

If i understand properly, you have deleted all RSS Feeds and still get the error?

Your pic is from Deleted items. What about All feeds (and unreaded feeds)?

Can you do a system restore before 10 days?

AMITKHERAuthor Commented:
As i'm not sure of the exact date/time system restore wouldn't be a safe enough option in my understanding

Sorry i was busy because work.

1) Download Revo Uninstaller Trial:
http://www.revouninstaller.com/download-professional-version.php
(Not the Free version! Because this version is old.)

2) Uninstall Windows Live Mail

3) After you will be asked to remove Registry files & Folders. Please do it

4) Reboot & reinstall Windows Live Mail again

Will this help?`


Awawada's option is also good. Why do you think it's not safe?

finally found a solution on

deleted the following folder
C:\Users\Amit Kher\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Feeds
that solved the problem
