    Only if the OneDrive icon will not show by default every time you restart the computer, you could place a shortcut to the .exe in your Startup folder.
    It does not show up after restart.

    Even with a shortcut to run that .exe in your Startup folder?

    Possibly the shortcut will work. The purpose of this question is just to know whether I have to put it there.

    You shouldn't have to by default, but since none of the usual methods have helped, it would be easier to place a shortcut of the .exe in your Startup folder as a workaround instead of having to do more drastic measures (ex: system restore or refresh) to fix it.

    Thank you. I just was wondering whether it is a common known problem.

    Not that I'm aware of. Usually one of the options in the tutorial below sorts it. If this has just recently started to happen, then doing a system restore using a restore point dated before it started may be a good viable option.
