Hello,

I have recently updated Windows, after the update RSS Owl turned haywire.
My feeds are vanished! In place appears a massage saying that:

"Could not create the view: An unexpected exception was thrown."

If I expand this message I see the following:

I have uninstalled and re-installed the RSS OWL, but the same problem persists.
I have checked my JAVA from their website, it turns that I am using the latest version.

I do not want to use other feed readers, I am very happy with RSS OWL, but gee it is not working!
Please help me!!!

Thanks
