You can deactivate folder synch as a group policy. Then do gpupdate/force at the PCs to ensure they have latest policy. Policies can take a couple of hours to replicate mind.
Also, make sure the group policy is being applied to all PCs

"I have disabled synchronize all offline files before Log on/off/suspend."  I've done this on both the comp/user gp configuration. Isnt that "deactivate folder synch as a group policy"?
