So, I downloaded this onto my work pc last week to sync my Office calendar with my google calendar. All hell broke lose as it started duplicating, triplicating, quadruplicating and even quintuplicating entries. And randomly deleting stuff. I uninstalled the app, but it's still wreaking havoc.

Any ideas how to stop this thing? I've looked at google calendar help, and can't find anything.

Hush, hush.  Keep it down now.

I'm really pleased that I never tried the sync.

My phone is what I use to "sync" the calendar items because it shows stuff from my personal Google calendars and my work calendar.

I have a Blackberry, so the phone calendar is pretty much worthless.

So, is it theoretically a two-way sync? So Outlook items are added to Google and Google items are added to Outlook?

Don't know if this is appropriate, but in addition to going to your control panel and uninstalling the program, can you still disable "Calendar Sync" for your account? That might help.

I thought I set it up just to add Outlook items to Google. But it seems to be caught in a vicious cycle. I would have thought that uninstalling the app would stop it, but not yet.

I didn't see anywhere on my google account to disable calendar sync. maybe I'm not looking in the right place.

Is the Google calendar the only one that is screwed up or is the Outlook one having issues also?

Aside: I'm just glad I got to read the word "quadruplicated".

Both. And on my iPad, which was synced with Google.

it may be syncing to multiple calendars on the ipad and then replicating itself on all the others. make sure you only have one of 2 calendars checked on the ipad and/or mobile me, if you use it.

'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

All hell broke lose as it started duplicating, triplicating, quadruplicating and even quintuplicating .

Call us back when it starts n-tuplicating, esp. as n --> infinity. Then, not only will all
hell break lose, all heck will break loose.

Just don't press the button on the iPad that makes it compute pi to the last digit.

Maybe it would help to clean your c-drive and get rid of any traces of the program?

It does say in Google to

Keep in mind that itís not possible to reverse your calendars to their previous state prior to syncing with Google Calendar Sync.


But that's not quite the same as your problem.

Do you still have the Google calendar icon in the Windows system tray?
