    Are you using a Microsoft account as you log-in?

    And what happens when you click Next?

    But yeah, you shouldn't be getting that on boot-up.

    Ya, it`s because I`m signed in to the Microsoft account, switching to a local account now, that should do the trick.

    Sure does take awhile LOL

    But you shouldn't have to switch to a local account to keep OneDrive from popping up like that. I've got both Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, and I use my Microsoft account to log in and I don't get that during boot-up. There's definitely an issue, unless you just completely ignored setting it up in the first place. This is why I asked what happens when you hit Next?

    BTW just because it's setup doesn't mean you have to use it.

    I`m sure I ignored setting it up LOL

    Well I'm not sure what's going on there. If the issue persists you might ask Brink, he's pretty good with OneDrive issues.

    I completed a reinstall a couple of days ago, from the Iso This was the second time I have reinstalled. I also have that popup now. My manual settings were exactly the same as previously. I also have that popup, now. Still investigating

    You have to sign out of the Microsoft account and sign in to a Local Account.

    I have never needed to sign in to a local account. I am sure your suggestion will work, but cures only the symptom, not the cause.

    Seems like a pretty minor issue to give up OneDrive for. I got rid of it with a reinstall but it recurred and I guess I'll just have to wait for the fix from Microsoft.
