Hi
It might be that the Sync. starts through a file that loaded at Startup, and
or starts a service.
These two small utilities can help in identifying and getting rid of the
culprit.
StartUp let you find and control what is loaded at Startup.
Process Explorer shows you all the running Processes and let you kill them
temporarily, so you can see what is affecting the system, it would also
inform you where and what is the source of the process.
