My news feed gadget is showing news that is not current--shows from august (of which year I am unsure). How do I refresh and get the news updates from current time?

I have other options, thank you for the top, but just want to refresh/update this one if available. Is feeddemon available as a gadget?

I found this on a Windows7 forum.

From a command prompt try the following bold commands..

1. Check if Task Scheduler is running
sc queryex schedule

Look at the "STATE:" line, it should read "4 RUNNING" if it's not running, then start it

sc start schedule

2. Check if RSS Download Engine is running
reg query HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Feeds /v SyncStatus
(Note the space after you type "feeds" above)

Look at the "Status" line, it should read "0x01" or "0x1". If it isn't enabled, then enable it

msfeedssync enable
