    double click : Prevent the usage of OneDrive for file storage , select Enabled and then click OK.

    Can you still use it manually that way, I just do not need it running with my PC every startup as I do not use very often?

    Thanks, I was wondering how to disable it permanently.

    Mine was labeled as SkyDrive.

    The OneDrive name is only available on Windows 8.1 Update. The RTM version of 8.1 will show it as SkyDrive.
