Whenever my computer is idle, msosync.exe runs in the background and consumes about 60% of my Intel Core 2 Duo processor. This increases fan noise, heat, and power usage on my computer, which I specifically chose because of its silence and low standby power use.
I am not using Sharepoint, Windows Live, Groove, Office 365, Skydrive, or whatever the latest MS cloud service is called. Why is this thing sucking up so much of my CPU all the time, and how can I manage it?
When I uninstall Office 2010, msosync disappears. When I reinstall, it comes back...and starts running again...and again...and again.....
Makes me want to give up on MS products completely.
Thank you in a advance for any suggestions or insights.
P.S. Love the fact that there is no "Offfice Topic" in which this issue belongs! But I have to choose one anyway.... Why isn't there one called "General problems with MS Office applications??"
