Internet Explorer 7 has decided to make it less clear when RSS feeds are updated

I'm using IE7 to browse the webs and subscribe to RSS feeds, but unfortunately it seems that it has decided to make it less clear when RSS feeds are subscribed.
There used to be a small star at the RSS icon in the favorites center whenever a feed had received an update and show the name of the feed and the feed's folder in bold, whereas now the only the name of the feed itself is in bold and it is impossible to see if there's updates to any feeds without opening all the folders.

This happened after installing an update to IE7 earlier today, so naturally I tried deleting the update, but that didn't help. I've also tried to do a system restore to yesterday, where I know that it worked, but that didn't change it back either.

I've looked through the various options in IE7, but haven't found anything that could be related to this.

I'm running XP Home SP2, if it makes any difference and it would be great if anyone can help with this in any way.

EDIT: Great. Now it won't even bold the name of the feed.

    Have you ever thought of using Firefox with a skin to make it look exactly like IE7?

    You have many options when it comes to reading RSS in firefox, either live bookmarks or very many extensions.

    If you do use Firefox, I'd suggest trying out Feed Sidebar - it's basically a sidebar for Live Bookmarks. Other than that, I'd recommend using an online feed reader like Google Reader.

    Also, the IE8 beta may not have the same problem.

    I haven't heard about IE8 before (might be because this is apparently the first version available), but I'll give it a try.

    Also, I always feel like I should be using the newest version of software available, even if it's a beta.

    I know exactly what you mean and was quite insistent upon it until the nightlies I used for Firefox and Thunderbird kept crashing on me. I'm slightly more relaxed about it now.

    Thanks for this.

    Edit: It doesn't work with the latest version of Firefox.
