Windows 10: Why do I have a Microsoft Account task with no Microsoft Account?

    Why do I have a Microsoft Account task with no Microsoft Account?


    This is puzzling me. I log in with a local account and disabled OneDrive in the group policy editor (along with most other standard stuff like WU/Telemetry (plus regedit)/etc). The only app I have ever logged in with was the Store (one time "this app only") then removed the account from settings.

    So what is this and why is it always running? As the top process no less, occasionally spiking up to 5% CPU. If I kill it or reboot, it comes back. WWAhost.exe in details, folder from rightclick>properties is in the shot.

    This may help you: What is WWAHost.exe and Why is it Running?
    In short, some Windows apps (like Weather) depend on something called Javascript and WWAHost.exe hosts the code.

    I have no idea what Cloud Experience Host is, but I know that it has nothing to do with OneDrive. This page describes it: What is Connect to Cloud Option or Cloud Experience Host in Windows 10

    Like above, if you've used Join Azure AD - it will automatically run

    CloudExperienceHost might also be activated by Retail Demo Service
    Disabling the mentioned service should cure it.
