Problem with calibre Fetch news

I have been using the Fetch News function for a long time without any problems, but for the past two days have been unable to download anything.

This is the error message I receive...


Fetch news from The Independent
Python function terminated unexpectedly
'WindowsExclFile' object has no attribute '_handle' (Error Code: 1)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site.py", line 132, in main

File "site-packages\calibre\utils\lock.py", line 49, in seek
AttributeError: 'WindowsExclFile' object has no attribute '_handle'


Thanks for any help.

Try uninstalling calibre, deleting c:\program files\calibre2 and then re-installing. This will not affect your books/settings.
