I did my research before I installed 8.1 for the first time a few weeks ago after using 7 for years.
I made sure I removed all traces of cloud, once during install (turning of at instal option) and once after reading tutorials in here before I loaded anything else.
Yesterday I reinstalled because I think I know enough to do a clean job, I did a UEFI install.
Low and behold, the computer starts up with my previous installed background, and all the Start menu headings were as they were before I reinstalled. WTH?
I went online and the cloud storage for my account is empty on onedrive. How did this happen? I am completely dumbfounded and really feel that my privacy has been invaded due to the fact I ticked all the boxes and said NO!
Anyone have any clues?
