    In Vista the answer to your question is Yes. You can stop it from starting automatically.
    Select ‘start’ and type ‘services’. From the results select option ‘services’. Scroll down the page until you locate ‘portable device enumerator service’. Double click this service. On the ‘general’ tab change the startup type to ‘manual’. Select ‘stop’ directly underneath. Select ‘apply’.
    Mobsync will now run on demand…when you actually need to sync devices.
    It effects no other service on your computer.
