Backup Assistant Plus on Motorola Razr HD won't stop attempting to sync

How do I get Backup Assistant Plus to stop attempting to sync? I've googled this and found it to be a common question, but none of the solutions posted there have resolved the problem that when my phone has been in standby for a few hours (or possibly its when I'm moving around into and out of WiFi coverage) and I wake it up, it attempts a Sync and fails.

I never used to have this problem, but for whatever reason, at one point I attempted to set up Backup Assistant Plus, decided I didn't like/need it, and attempted to turn it off. This has been happening ever since and I'm really tired of having to dismiss the sync attempt page.

In Settings->Apps->All->Backup Assistant Plus and Settings->Apps->All->Backup Assistant+ Contacts, the Disable, Clear Data, Clear Cache, and Clear Defaults buttons are greyed out. Force Stop doesn't seem to help.

I went to the My Verizon page and removed Backup Assistant Plus from my account. Still no help.

One of the suggestions I found from Google was that perhaps one needed to disable backup assistant plus on the phone first before disabling it on My Verizon. Only problem there was that I couldn't find how to disable it on the phone.

I've been putting up with this for nearly a year and I'm sick of it. Any help?
