    I don't want Skydrive Pro in the context menu, or Office Upload center in the taskbar after installing Office 2013.

    Skydrive Pro is present in the registry in two locations:

    Code:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers
    
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Approved
    Office Upload center is started by the task scheduler (Microsoft Office 15 Sync Maintenance ...).


    What's the best method for preventing these two from being added during installation? Can I just change the config.xml for this, or should I use a .msp file?

    Thanks.
