Does anyone know how to keep Sharepoint Workspace from restarting after exiting?

I have disabled Preferences -> Options -> Startup Settings -> Launch

But still everytime I quit the application from the system tray, 10 seconds later it starts up again.

Run MSConfig.exe and remove it from startup items. Then it will not start when you reboot your computer, so will not keep restarting.

This will remove it from the computer's startup. The OP wants to know how to keep it from restarting when he exits the program. – bgmCoder Jan 21 at 17:49
