    I looked around for some time, but i did not get any usable answer.

    I am running Vista Ultima 64 and i ask fior advice applying to Vista and NOT

    The Problem:

    using process explorer and tasskmanager i constantly see mobsync.exe running
    as well as wmplayer, invisible in the background.
    It looks like they index something.

    I found out that this must have something to do with either offline files,
    sync center or mediaplayer sharing, maybe also related to the USB sticks i
    have in my PC.

    But no matter what tips and tricks i apply, no matter what i set, what
    service i disable...i cannot get rid of those constantly starting. I dont
    what triggers them!

    I want that mobsync.exe as well as wmplayer NEVER appear in the list of
    running tasks anymore, no "indexing" of my drives, nothing.

    Thank you!

  2. Hi
    Processes like this can be invoked directly, or can be a result of running
    applications that you do need and use these processes.
    If you do not want Indexing then disable the Indexing.
    Otherwise you can use these two free applications (Startup & Process
    Explorer) to snoop around and disable in need applications and startups.

    I don't know about your problem with wmplayer (it's not constantly
    running here (Windows 6, aka Vista [Business]), but maybe that's because
    I've never run wmplayer), but I managed to extinguish mobsync by
    stopping the service "Offline Files" (CscService) and setting its
    "Startup type" to Manual.
