How to disable/get rid of Microsoft Upload Center?
After you installed and run Microsoft Office 2010, you notice that there's this little orange circle thing in your task bar.
You click it and it tells you it's the Microsoft Upload Center.
The Upload Center is a tool that's included with Office 2010. When you open files from a server or upload files to a server it caches the files for you and monitors the transfer process. If it's interrupted for some reason, the Center can notify you and can even restart the process later, when network connectivity returns.
Basically I prefer to do any uploads manually via FTP client, I don’t rely on those buggy and annoying little Microsoft tools.
It doesn't describe how the Upload Center gets loaded in the first place, what sort of file transfers it actually monitors, or how to get rid of it once it's invoked.
The Upload Center sets some values in the Windows registry that cause Upload Center to load again every time you restart Windows. So doesn’t matter whether you use or not the Upload Center, it will load on Windows start up.
How to disable/get rid of Microsoft Upload Center? Solution 1.
To get rid of Upload Center for the current Windows session:
• Press Ctrl + Alt + Del then click Task Manager.
• Click the Processes tab.
• Under Image Name, find MSOSYNC.EXE. Click it to select it.
• Click End Process.
• Do the same for OSPPSVC.EXE.
• Click Yes to the Task Manager Warning message.
Unfortunately this will not stop loading the Upload Center next time, when Windows starts.
