Well i am looking for the registry/policy setting to delete this button. I don't think there is an other way.
I know for example that you can delete the FILE menu in your menu bar by a registry setting. So if anyone knows which one it is......

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