    OneDrive has been moving files and folders all over the place, what I mean by this is I have a DATA drive specifically for Documents/ Pictures/Downloads/Movies/Music.. I moved all these folders from the default C: drive on installation to the D: drive. OneDrive however moved Documents/ Downloads back to C:drive to this directory C:\Users\*****\Documents\OneDrive resulting in having to manually navigate to the D: drive if I wanted to access something stored in that drive at that location. After struggling to get OneDrive to delete, I finally went to the registry editor and ripped it's guts out, OneDrive now complains it cant find that directory anymore, but who cares, everything's back to where I originally put it. and OneDrive is disabled :shifty:

    You can stop OneDrive from starting with Sysinternals, autorun.exe.

    Did you right click autorun.exe and Run as Administrator?
