There is no easy way of removing the button, but...

Using NTFS permissions, DENY full control to the users on two files:

Windows\system32\mobsync.exe
Windows\system32\mobsync.dll

That will not remove the button, but it simply won't do anything. Mobsync is the executable responsible for synchronizing files and web sites.
