OneDrive Killer

Microsoft’s OneDrive is decent cloud storage product.  It works every bit as well as Dropbox, Mega.nz and other similar applications.  If however you or your organization has standardized on another cloud storage option (or none at all), OneDrive in Windows 10 becomes annoying and intrusive.  OneDrive has been designed by Microsoft to be purposefully anoying – there is no way to uninstall it from Windows 10.  Even if you manage to follow a series of uninstallation instructions, you might find it re-installed after your next windows update session.

The tool below is specifically designed to uninstall Microsoft OneDrive in a single button click.  No installation necessary, run and delete this tool, or save it for later if you are worried about OneDrive re-appearing.

How does it remove OneDrive?

OneDrive Killer performs several uninstallation techniques to remove OneDrive.

  1. Check for and kill any task with the name “OneDrive.exe”
  2. Run “OneDriveSetup.exe /uninstall”
  3. Delete the registry key “CLSID\\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}”
  4. Set the registry key “HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\OneDrive\DisableFileSyncNGSC=0” (just in case OneDrive sneaks back in)
  5. Set the registry key “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\ShowSyncProviderNotifications=0” (hide OneDrive explorer advertising)
  6. Delete the folder “C:\\OneDriveTemp” if it exists
  7. Delete the folder “%programdata%\Microsoft OneDrive” if it exists
  8. Delete the folder “%localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive” if it exists

This is pre-alpha software.  It has worked great on my computer and those around me, but I cannot guarantee that it will work on your computer and I won’t promise that it cannot cause any problems.

I’m eager to hear your thoughts.  Let me know if there’s any problems, I’ll be happy to try and correct them.  nicholas@coad.ca  Once again, no warranty, no promises provided here.  Use at your own risk.
