HOW TO DISABLE THE SYNC CENTER & OFFLINE FILES IN WINDOWS 7

How Do You Know Whether Offline Files is Enabled?

In Windows 7, Offline Files works together with the Sync Center. When turned on, you will see the Sync Center icon in the taskbar and a process running, named mobsync.exe.

This does not work always. if so, you shoud do this:
1 Go to Start/Run and type ‘regedit’. Hit the Enter key or click OK.
2 In the left hand registry editor window (the tree view) go to the following registry address:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SyncMgr\Handlers

3 In there you should see a branch called: {08b0b2d5-3fb3-11d3-a4de-00c04f610189}
4 Right-click on the branch and select Delete from the context menu.
5 Restart your system and the icon should be gone.
Cheers!

I have a feeling my sync problems arose with new QuickBooks installation. I've been trying to shut this down or delete without success. Followed your procedure and all good until I got to last step and branch is not as you listed for Windows 7; mine reads ....

{08b0b2d5-3fb3-11d3-a4de-00c04f610189} = SQL Server Handler
{750fdf10-2a26-11d1-a3ea-080036587f03} = Offline Files Handler
It seems you have your Offline Files feature still enabled. If not it is okay to remove its handler manually through registry using the method I described.
And don't worry the worst case scnario would be that Sync Center would no longer work nor start on logon which is what you want, right? ;)

According to MS, you can't stop the Sync Center. Obviously it can be prevent ed though :)
