    Question on Skydrive since this week's udpates


    Hey gang,

    So since installing this week's windows updates, I now have a notification in the systray saying that " Files are up to date, last updated xxx minutes ago "

    When I click on that notification icon, it takes me to a Skydrive folder, and within it is a documents, favorites, public, and shared favorites folders. When I double click those folders, there are no files within them.

    I do not have Skydrive set to upload, or sync, any files.
    So then should I be getting these notifications? Why would it show updating empty folders when Skydrive is not enabled? Is there a setting somewhere I should change?

    Thanks for any tips,

    Well, please disregard, I should have read some of the posts on this forum first, just got back in town and noticed this - I found the thread with the reg file that disables and gets rid of the notification icon - all is well now!
