How do I delete XP on shutdown syncronization?

Posted on 2011-05-13

We have images at work we use for deployment, they were made before I got here but i do have administrator access to change anything.
They are Windows XP

There is only 1 thing left that I need to remove,  The Start ->All Programs ->Accessories -> Syncronize

The problem is that the network server it ties to is not there anymore and hangs on exit until you manually close the sync window.

I have tried to uncheck the box, uncheck everything under settings and after a restart it always comes back with the "On shutdown" box selected.

Where do i go in the registry or group policy editor or whatever to delete this thing?!? We already backup everything online as we work, we do not need this syncronization anymore.

    Does this image use offline files sync?

    If so, see:

    Basically, you want to disable offline files!

    If not, there might be a logoff script configured for the user in the image...

    Have your tried the following?

    ... logging in locally as an Administrator, navigating 
    to the folder where the files are stored and manually deleting them...
