As users leave or transfer to anther PC, how do I stop their profile from trying to sync when logging off from their old PC?

Ok for when its running on battery mode.  What is happening is user X is no longer on PC A, but is now using PC B.  A user Y comes in and we set them up on PC A.  When user Y logs off of PC A, windows still tries to syncronize user X files.  How do I stop this?  I have tried removing user X profile, but it still tries to sync.

you can disable synchronizing from going to my computer, tools, folder options,  "offline files" tab.
ther you can only uncheck "synchronize all offline files before logging off" or hardly disable offline files.

Hope it helps.
