Kenny has a problem: My computer somehow synced itself to my email account, how can I make it stop?
I use windows 8 and I just noticed on the start page where it says mail it was displaying an email about my insurance details, I clicked on it and realized it's somehow synced itself to my email account without my knowledge and I have no idea how to unsync it! That is my private email account where I get all my important emails sent including work emails and I'm not the only person who uses this computer how the hell do I stop it form syncing?
Our solution:

Your problem is the OneDrive Sync Data feature of Windows 8.1.
To turn it off, just follow this tutorial:
