    Re: What is mobsync.exe ?

    Hi Lonnie,

    mobsync.exe
    Microsoft Mobile Synchronization Manager. One annoying programme you will find running in W2K/XP is mobsync.exe. This is because it is set by default to synchronise your home page at log-on. To stop this, run the programme "Synchronise" from your "Start/Programmes/Accessories Menu. Select setup, and uncheck the synchronisation options, then deselect the option to synchronise your home page. From explorer select Tools/Folder Options/Offline Files: deselect the "Enable Offline Files" option. When you reboot you will find the programme is no longer running by default. You can also remove optional components from your Windows 2000 installation that are not shown in the Add/Remove Programmes applet.

    Hope this helps

    Regards

    John

    Is it actually doing anything other than sitting in your ..system folder? i.e. - is it running?

    I liked the look of Startup List from your attachment, and discovered by Googling that the latest version is 1.5 (26th December 2002), available from (presumably) the author's web page at http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/

    It would be nice to know what some of the more opaque programs actually do...!

    Hi Lonnie

    Your attachment lists United Devices software as being installed on your computer. This would indicate that your computer is being used as part of an "online" computer network (eg: SETI).
    Just thought I'd point it out in case you weren't aware of it.

    Have a Great day!!!

    Ok...I knew about UD...have run this Cancer Research for over a year now. I thought you were referring to something else.

    Re: What is mobsync.exe ?

    By "opaque" I meant that I didn't always know what some of the programs listed in Startup List actually did, because either the directory path of the program name didn't give me any clues.

    I wonder whether anyone has compiled a "List of the Programs Found in Startup List and Their Function"?

    Thanks, Mark - unfortunately:
    a) this website is blocked by our Proxy Server since it thinks it is in some way naughty, and
    [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] it appears to be down at the time of writing!

    I will pursue the matter when (presumably) they wake up in the UK. [Thinks - I am in the UK!]

    It's up and working right now, and I think I am only posting a few moments after you.

    It still seems unwell to me - I will try it when I get home, for there I am (comparatively) unfettered!

    Probably references to such files as eusexe.exe. . . . .

    You may have better luck going in the front door, but I guess you'd still be blocked from the page you want to see.
