jshepp Posted January 18, 2011 Report Share Posted January 18, 2011 Hia folks. I'm new to these forums, but I've been reading groovyPost for a while now. I've have a laptop and I'm always looking around to find how I can make it run leaner and cleaner just because it isn't a supercomputer or something like that. I tend to be always looking in my Task Manager and I ran across mobsync.exe. I didn't recall looking up this process so I checked it out. So i google'd around and found some post about it. What Is It?Mobsync.exe is a process that belongs to Microsoft Sync Center and the Offline Files feature. It’s associated with a device like a Windows Mobile phone with ActiveSync, a SQL Server installation, or if you have Internet Explorer (a feature in IE 6 not in IE7 or above) set to synchronize pages for viewing offline. The process is not a threat and shouldn’t be deleted if you’re using the feature. If you go into Control Panel, you can launch Sync Center and manage its settings. Ok great. But what? I know I don't have a Windows mobile phone, I don't think I use SQL?, and I don't use IE (Chrome rocks btw ). So I was going to follow the post's instructions on how to disable the program, except they are incomplete. I have Windows Vista, and following their advice I searched "Offline Files" with no results. Apparently other people have the same problem as well when I read through the comments. I ran MSCONFIG but I couldn't find a way to disable it there. So yeah, and that's where I'm at. Any ideas? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
