onedrive.exe file purpose and description:
OneDrive.exe is a file that may have been on your PC since the day you purchased it. Be sure to verify the exact disk location shown below, as disk locations are shown below so you can verify it is not spyware or virus related software app. Note also the latest version of Microsoft Windows now automatically adds this to the system, so you will see this OneDrive.exe software program or app in your task list even if you aren't using it. This OneDrive.exe file is now part of the Microsoft Windows OS and it is part of their windows cloud service. I suspend this on my system in my task list without any problems at all, so if you aren't using it then you don't need to have useless stuff running on your PC and taking up resources. If you are using it then I would leave it. This file is not considered to be spyware, virus, or adware related and it is considered safe software. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)

Be aware that many tasks will be similiar names to existing tasks or processes.
You can always view the running tasks on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view the windows
"task manager", and then view the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running or currently active
on your PC. Although this shows you all running tasks, it does not show dll file thats are loaded, as they
get loaded as part of other processes. Many spyware writers attempt to hide their files
on your computer, for example, onedrive.exe may be intentionally misspelled to look like a similiar task, or spyware may be named very
similiar to a Windows system task. The reason they do this is so you cannot easily recognize the name in your tasklist
as I have mentioned above. Make sure always check the location of the file if you are concerned.
You can always find the location of onedrive.exe on your computer by using your Windows search options, but
I will also try to list the file location of every file described on this website, so you can verify the correct location. You can view the entire tasklist directory with the link below.
