offline files won't stop synchroning

Hewlett-packard Microsoft windows server...

Specs: Windows xp, 1222
a network users laptop is setup for offline files. Previously 3 network users logged onto this laptop, the logged on just once or twice and will not log onto this laptop again, only the present user will be logging onto this laptop. When the present user logs on it also synchronizes the other 3 users that previously logged on, so I (an admin) logged into the laptop and deleted the offline files, by opening 'my computer' 'tools' 'folder options' 'offline files' 'delete files'. So all the offline files were deleted including the present user. The present user then logged back in 'online', it synchronized real quick, then she logged off and it took a few minutes to synchronize. Then she immediately logged back in and it started synchronizing - after about 7 minutes of synchronizing the user hit 'stop' so she could finally do some work.

Would this create a problem when the present user logs back in? Wouldn't it just simple synchronize as usual? why is it taking so long to synchronize on the second login after deleting the offline files folder? is this usual? Should the user not have hit stop and let it synchronize? all of this deleting and logging in and out was done while the laptop was 'online'

should i do a 'ctrl + shift' 'delete files'
