    Hello,

    I discover inside W2K8 R2 64 a scheduled task :
    C:\Windows\system32\msfeedssync.exe
    with argument :
    sync

    Is it a virus ?

    Regards,

    Cyril

    MSFeedSync.exe is Microsoft Feeds Synchronization task executable used by the Windows Internet Explorer 7 and 8 web browser to periodically update in-browser RSS feeds which have automatic RSS Feeds synchronization turned ON.

    a.    Open Internet Explorer (IE).

    b.    Navigate to Tools > Internet Options.

    c.    Switch to Content tab.

    d.    From the Feeds section click Settings.

    e.    Then uncheck the option “Automatically check feeds for updates”.

    f.     Exit IE and reboot your server.
