    I can take active sinc out of my startup folder and then sandbox it from putting itself back in there, but is there a setting somewhere in the interface to keep it from insisting on starting?

    Not sure if I understand your question, but if you don't want it to "auto-sync" when connected, reference the screenshot.

    If you are trying to stop it from starting within Windows, do as you said before by removing from startup, or using MSCONFIG or editing the registry.

    Did either of those answer your question?

    I like auto sync, that's not my problem

    the sync application starts with windows...even if you take it out of the registry it puts itself back in I want to start it when I want not whenever I turn on the box

    then there's no exit either...what's up with that?

    looks like what I'm asking for...thing is I can already do that with my sandbox, I was just hoping there was a switch in the interface that I was missing

    I understand your theory, but honestly I can say I'm not surprised. Microsoft wants to be the top dog of everything, if they built an "exit" into it, that would give you the option of using other things. If it's always running, it is just more convenient to use their tool.

    EDIT: Thanks for the rep, you give mucho puntos :)
