How to prevent Microsoft Sync Center from running? This damn process mobsync.exe is executed without my will and it remains active for hours and hours, forever, until I shut down my PC!!

Disable it from startup process and disable its service:

Start
Run (type in run if in Vista/7 and press ENTER)
Type in "msconfig" (no quotes)
Under the Startup tab, remove "mobsync.exe" (uncheck it) [This will prevent it from loading at start up]
Under the Services tab, uncheck any service that sounds like it involves mobsync; look for something like Microsoft Sync Center or Synchronization
Finally, restart your computer.

In control panel if you go to Offline files and click the button to
disable offline files there will be nothing for sync center to try to
syncronize.

"Offline files" is not present in Home Premium; the Sync Center is available, but it's impossible to disable it :angry:
