Have you considered a clean install after backing up your personal stuff as well as creating an image backup ?

I don't know if WR will reset OneDrive or if it would be as you want it -

As for the icon to change the settings, have you tried - Start - Settings cog - Personalization - Taskbar then scrolled down to Notification Area - Select which icons appear on the Taskbar to see if it is listed and if toggling it will get it to appear if it is there.

I forget what I did to get rid of OneDrive, but it isn't listed in my items.

On Page #2 of this article, there's a guy who managed to fix this problem by using a 3rd party program to increase the size of his reserved drive.

The post is by IES_ChrisG April 26 2017 -

Not sure if it will work for you, but worth a try -

What other errors are you getting ?

The icon could be hidden.

I'm not sure if this article gives you what you want, as you'll still want access to your files in a normal way - but see what it does for you.

There are a number of Google links for your error, but this looks the most authoritative -

Take care before entering the commands as the article advises, but if you aren't sure then I would suggest that you take the machine into a repair shop.

It's a false positive generated by the heuristics of WD and MSE following a recent update to their Definitions.

Some have had success in reverting to 4.0.14 until this is resolved, but while 4.0.15 is perfectly safe, if an AV program is kicking it out then if you need to run the program, you can do so but it would mean downloading and running it in Safe Mode with Networking each time or just using 4.0.14.

I don't know why this affects 4.0.15 and not 4.0.14.

From a post submitted by jpm, I understand that either he or Shane will be taking this up with MS but as to when it will be resolved, I don't know.

You can download earlier versions of WR by clicking on the links on the right from

While I have three laptops, only one is usually in use so I've never bothered with that.

There are some suggestions in this article that may help -

That's Windows for you....

Win 10 has an useful cmd for resetting all network adapters and which is netcfg -d

Follow that up with shutdown /r /t 00 which will effect the reboot that is required to effect the cmd.

This cmd can also restore when network adapters go missing from Device Manager, but after running it for any other reason, it's best to go into Device Manager/View/Show hidden devices/Network adapters to see if they are all there and if not, just run those cmds again.

I've removed your duplicate post.

There has always been the doubt that Kaspersky could be spying and even though there are denials from Kaspersky, I would think that if Putin ordered them to do it, there would be very little they could do to refuse given the power he has.

I don't have Kaspersky installed - I use Norton Security but have found the Kaspersky Rescue Disk very helpful in the past and while it scans the files for infections, it also seems to have some healing attributes.

As for MS and WR, it is my understanding from jpm's post that he or Shane will be contacting MS about this.

While it could be an inconvenience, you could do what Marcus5664 plans to do and that is to download and run the program in Safe Mode with Networking if/when you need to use it - it isn't or shouldn't be a program that you need to run regularly.

AFAIK it is a life time licence and not annual, so it won't expire.

I've just had a look at your BC thread and that has posted fine.

For clarification, did you run the Tweaking program in safe mode, using the repair program to get you into Safe Mode with Networking and did you have an Internet connection in that mode ?

Thanks for your input to this thread.

Yes, I've just found the Reports link in the left pane and what you have found for viewing it.

As MBAM has never really found anything on my machines, I've never bothered with the reports.
