    Remove Skydrive


    Hi

    Skydrive seems to have become more active and visible on my PC,
    emailed pictures go there and there is an icon in my notification area,
    and I get message about skydrive popping up, also it Syncs to something or other.

    No offense MS (I love most of what you do and provide) but I do not need nor want to use Skydrive, so how do I get rid of it completely.

    Thanks

    Daniel
