Windows 7: OneDrive adding "Uninstall" to Windows 7 Startup. Why?

22 Apr 2014   #1

OneDrive adding "Uninstall" to Windows 7 Startup. Why?

I am running Windows 7 Pro x64 with Microsoft OneDrive (SkyDrive) and the program keeps adding the following entries to the startup.

Uninstall c:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\SkyDrive\17.0.4035.0328_1

A week ago was the first entry and now I have

Uninstall c:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\SkyDrive\17.0.4035.0328_2
Uninstall c:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\SkyDrive\17.0.4035.0328_3
Uninstall c:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\SkyDrive\17.0.4035.0328_5

Anyone know what is causing this? I don't get any Error messages or anything standing out in the Log files.
