How to turn off network synchronizing

a couple weeks ago I logged into one of my customer's networks with my XP laptop. Ever since then, when I go to shut down my computer a window pops up labeled "Synchronizing". It attempts to synchronize with my customers network, but of course I'm not conneted. How do I turn off this feature on my laptop?

You need to re-initialize the offline files cache.

In Folder Options, on the Offline Files tab, press CTRL+SHIFT, and then click Delete Files. The following message appears:
The Offline Files cache on the local computer will be re-initialized. Any changes that have not been synchronized with computers on the network will be lost. Any files or folders made available offline will no longer be available offline. A computer restart is required.

Do you wish to re-initialize the cache?
Click Yes two times to restart the computer.
