  1. Why is Host Process for Setting synchronization running?


    Hello,


    this process is running all the time in task manager. I don't use onedrive, or any email client. Also i have disabled synchronization in privacy settings and in gpedit. Yet when i login, i notice in task manager some process, i think "microsoft sync". Than it quickly disappears. But former process is running all the time. How do i prevent this for running? I am not using synchronization.


    I also noticed microsoft store install service is running, startup is on manual. Yet i didn't open store and not using it. Can i disable this service, or it is used for something. I am not using store generally speaking too.


    Please can you answer directly, instead of some vague answer.


    Thanks!

    :)

    How to solve Host process for setting synchronization cpu/memory/disk usage

    Hi,

    The Host process for setting synchronization is a process that synchronizes system settings like wallpaper, theme color, and Internet Explorer bookmarks for any computer that you log into using your Microsoft account. If
    you turn off your sync settings, this process should be automatically disabled as well. To turn off your sync settings, follow these steps:

    • Click Start.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Click Accounts.
    • Choose Sync your settings from the left pane.
    • Turn off Sync settings.
    • Restart your computer.

    Let us know if your computer's performance improves after following these steps.

  3. After Install, Host Process for Setting Synchronization causing flashing screen

    After one of the install reboots, my desktop came up never fully loads. Instead it keeps refreshing. It seems that the Host Process for Setting Synchronization is what is being reset or retrying to Synch, since the screen keeps flashing. I looked at
    task manager and it is what is using the most CPU time. Because of this I can't finish the Win 10 install. Any suggestions?

    Hi Michael

    Host Process for Setting Synchronization is a legitimate processes involved in User Account Syncing across multiple PC's

    Open the Settings App (gear icon on your Start Menu)

    Go to Accounts - Sync your Settings

    Turn off account syncing on that page

    That should stop that message . . .
