    How do I turn off Turn Off Offline Files Synchronization.
    A process (mobsync.exe) runs periodically and I want to
    turn it off.

    This is a perfect case of when to use Google.

    Control Panel>Network and Internet>Offline Files
    Click "Disable Offline Files". Respond to the UAC prompt.

    I don't have a Network and Internet icon in Control Panel.
    I do have a Network and Sharing Center icon but no options
    for Offline Files are present here.
    All is turned off in Network and Sharing Center.

    I see you multiposted. The poster in the other newsgroup gave you the right

    Look in Vista's Help & Support. Or use Google for yourself.

    I didn't mean to multi-post. Just happened my subject
    was the same as the other.
    I can't help that Windows Mail does things that way.


    JamesI ca't help WIndows Mail

    It doesn't matter if the subject is the same or not. YOU multi-posted
    when you sent separate messages (not at the same time) to different

    YOU did it. Not Windows Mail.

    I was unable to see my origninal post in ...Vista.General.
    I found my post under someone else's post with the SAME subject.
    Windows mail placed my post where it ended up.
    I had a problem earlier in the week with my reply to another post
    not showing up although all my other replied did show. Other people
    saw my reply but for some reason I was not. I thought, maybe, this was
    a related problem.

    Next time I'll just search the entire damn newsgroup subject before I decide
    on the Subject.
    I would hate to inconvenience anyone.,

  8. Try grouping posts by conversation. Done this way, references are kept
    despite changes in subject field.

    You don't get the point. My Newsreader (Windows Live Mail) shows that you
    made a post with the subject "Offline Files" in
    microsoft.public.windows.vista.general at 10.52 am today. No-one else posted
    a message with that subject line today except you.
    My newsreader ALSO shows you posted the SAME question under a slightly
    different subject line "Turn Off Offline Files Synchronization" in THIS
    group at 11.30am today.
    That is MULTIPOSTING not crossposting.

    see here for more information:

    But he multiposted, using a different subject line.

  11. Maybe so, I was just trying to suggest a way for him to avoid his view
    being grouped by subject (if that were the case).

    I used a different subject line thinking I did post with
    the same subject as another post. I reposted to a different
    group before I checked to see if that was the case.
    Sorry. Didn't mean to cause sucha [email protected]#@ing problerm for everyone.

    microsoft.public.windows.vista.general at 10.52 am today

    That's because you happened to use the same subject line as someone else
    - but you STILL multiposted instead of crossposting.

    You people are complete jerks. I am actually looking for a solution to my problem and all you can do is bicker about how this guy may have done something that annoyed you. Get a life. Good thing I don't use Vista, I just came across this completely worthless thread by chance. I registered on this site just to tell you that you're a bunch of a-holes.

    While searching for an answer on a related topic, I came across this gem of a thread.

    It is a museum quality example of bureaucratic nothingness at work; pulling the victim altogether away from the issue at hand, and forcibly remanding same into the depths of InterWeb forum hell.

    A tip for those who might could bring themselves to care: once administrative overhead has exceeded the goal it was originally intended to serve, management's axe comes off the wall for a good sharpening, and . . The only two places of exception I am aware of are, government, and apparently, "helpful" blogs/forums like this one.

    Hope I didn't do a triple axle/backflip post or anything like that.
