Hey Boggin,
I have tried that exact method you suggested. Still same issue. I don't understand why this thing refuses to update.
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.
I really dislike and do not need OneDrive, but it's baked in to Windows 10. The best we can do is hide or disable it, but it's not that easy. Though I uninstalled OneDrive in Control Panel, and turned off every activation instance I could find, the program still persists in stashing my stuff in impossible, secret places not on the Microsoft Cloud, but in OneDrive folders it creates on its own initiative. I've just discovered that all my desktop content is squirreled away in a OneDrive folder, not in Windows/Users/me/desktop. It's infected Outlook, adding unnecessary "(this computer only)" status to all my folders. Several third-party programs default file-save only to new OneDrive locations. 

A long email exchange with Microsoft support led to this "fix": Delete your Microsoft account, even though this will kill all purchased apps from the Microsoft Store, delete all Skype credits, remove me from all support threads, and possibly disable my phone among other warnings. In an hours-long phone conversation with Microsoft the company has NO OneDrive support team a supervisor apologized for none of his agents having been trained in OneDrive, though he advised against such radical surgery.

We reinstalled OneDrive and its App. Still, the blue or white One Drive logo did not appear in the taskbar to enable a disable. Then, on clicking Sign Out in the app, Microsoft's streaming dots simply squirmed around for hours without accomplishing the task. I've spent hours with Microsoft on this issue and all I got was a useless case number but no fix. If anyone can wrestle this gawd-awful program into submission, it has to be which has saved my bacon in other ways.

Fingers crossed.

 Hey Shane,

My Windows update has been failing for a long while. This latest update (Fall Creators Update) has multiple errors starting with "We couldn't update the system reserved partition" -and- "This PC can't run Windows 10".

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.

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 -

right now the network works fine, except PC1 cannot be seen, even tho SMBv1 client and server is installed. I have a mapped drive and as soon an I access that from PC2, PC1 shows up in the network. so goofy.

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.
