Uninstall OneDrive.

    Uninstall OneDrive.

    I performed a Test Install a few days ago to get ready for a Clean Install in a couple of days, BUT, I must admit that I was lazy, and in order to Uninstall OneDrive, I only ran . . .

    taskkill /f /im OneDrive.exe
    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\OneDriveSetup.exe /uninstall -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

    Bearing that in mind, I have put the following Batch Script together [ with info where needed ] ready to use on my actual Clean Install. Unfortunately, I can NOT test it. Maybe someone could look at it please and tell me if I have excluded anything important, or included anything that is NOT required.

    @echo off
    setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion
    set "params=%*"
    cd /d "%~dp0" && ( if exist "%Temp%\getadmin.vbs" del "%Temp%\getadmin.vbs") && fsutil dirty query %systemdrive% 1>nul 2>nul || ( echo Set UAC = CreateObject^("Shell.Application"^) : UAC.ShellExecute "cmd.exe", "/k cd ""%~sdp0"" && %~s0 %params%", "", "runas", 1 >> "%Temp%\getadmin.vbs" && "%Temp%\getadmin.vbs" && Exit /b)
    %windir%\system32\reg.exe query "HKU\S-1-5-19" 1>nul 2>nul || ( echo. & echo  ERROR: This Batch file MUST be run in an ELEVATED cmd prompt [ Administrator ] & echo. & echo         Right-click the Batch file and click ^<Run as Administrator^>. & echo. & echo ^>Press ANY key to EXIT . . . & pause >nul & Exit )
    set x86="%SystemRoot%\System32\OneDriveSetup.exe"
    set x64="%SystemRoot%\SysWOW64\OneDriveSetup.exe"
    echo. & echo  Processing [ Uninstalling OneDrive ] . . .
    taskkill /f /im OneDrive.exe >nul 2>&1
    ping -n 5 >nul 2>&1
    if exist %x64% (
      %x64% /uninstall
    ) else (
      %x86% /uninstall
    ping -n 8 >nul 2>&1
    :: >>> Uninstall OneDrive <<<
    rmdir "%UserProfile%\OneDrive" /q /s >nul 2>&1
    rmdir "C:\OneDriveTemp" /q /s >nul 2>&1
    rmdir "%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\OneDrive" /q /s >nul 2>&1
    rmdir "%ProgramData%\Microsoft OneDrive" /q /s >nul 2>&1
    :: >>> Remove OneDrive from Win Explorer [ Left-Hand Side Panel ] <<<
    :: This belongs to OneDrive
       reg delete "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}" /f >nul 2>&1
       reg delete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}\ShellFolder" /f >nul 2>&1
    :: This belongs to Win 10
       reg delete "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}" /f >nul 2>&1
       reg delete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}\ShellFolder" /f >nul 2>&1
            echo  Processing Complete.
    echo. & echo ^>Press ANY key to EXIT . . . & pause >nul & Exit

    [1] I am pretty sure that this will survive a Reboot, but obviously I can NOT test it.
    [2] This should also remove OneDrive from the right-click File Explorer dropdown menu on This PC for example.

    Thanks in advance.

    I find WMIC stronger than Taskkill

    WMIC process where name='OneDrive.exe' Delete

    I have not uninstalled OneDrive, though.
