Need help getting rid of "mobsync.exe" on boot up.
I have removed it in both startup/system config utility, and in registery HKLM\software\ms\windows current ver\run but it returns on the next boot. I have even deleted it from Winnt/system32 folder but it is reinstalled when I reboot. I have two machines with win 2K but it only shows up on one. Dont know how it became active on only one.
Appreciate any advice
Thanks Russ

Hi,
This is the web content and offline file synchronizer. Try this:
Go to Start => Programs => Accessories => Synchronize and disable (uncheck) everything in there.

Hi Russ,

Just in case I didn't say it well, in the Synchronize window, you have to click on the Setup button and uncheck everything there.
In Explorer, Tools => Folder Options => Offline files, uncheck everything there.
And in Internet Explorer, Tools => Internet Options => Advanced, uncheck the box 'Enable offline items to be synchronized on a schedule'.
Regarding deleting the file mobsync.exe, is it also present in C:\WINNT\System32\dllcache? If so, and you're sure you want rid of it, I would move it out of there first, rather than delete it. You would then delete it out of the System32 folder.

Regards
