iCloud Creating Duplicate Bookmarks - Due to Win 8.1 Sync?

I am running iCloud on multiple PC's. Everything was fine until I had it running on two 8.1 PC's, then I started having problems.

In total, iCloud was running on one Win 7 Pro PC and two Windows 8.1 PC's. My theory is that the two Windows 8.1 PC's were syncing via iCloud and Skydrive (or Onedrive) which is set up by default. But they were able to read each other's settings okay. But Win 7 doesn't have the same sync settings, so the bookmarks were being written in 8.1 and then multiplying in Win 7.

I'm not sure, but this is my theory. Running on all Win 7 is okay. Running on all Win 8.1 seems okay. But combining the two OS's with iCloud seems to cause some problems.

Anyone have any ideas on this?
