I store my OneNote notebooks on SkyDrive. On my work computers, Office 2010 retains my SkyDrive info (I installed the sign in assistant as suggested; I don't know what effect this has).

I'm now changing jobs and would like to wipe all information related to my SkyDrive account from my work computers. The sign-in assistant doesn't seem to have an uninstaller, and OneNote seems to be retaining my login info for SkyDrive. How can I remove all traces of my SkyDrive account from Office?

Try uninstalling the Browser Helper object under Internet Explorer.

I disabled the BHO, but there's no change in OneNote. – Roger Feb 17 '12 at 17:00

Th easiest way to do this is to open the Credentials Manager in Windows and delete the SkyDrive account login details there. This article gives you step by step instructions on how to do this on a Windows 7 machine.

You just need to remove Skydrive from your computer, then log out of Skydrive on the web. The web locations will still appear, however nothing can be selected/opened.

Since time was short, I solved this by creating a throwaway Hotmail account and logging into Windows Live with it on my work machines. I'm sure there's a better way, but this seemed to do the trick.

The true way to do this is pretty simple and just worked for me with OneNote 2010. Navigate to File -> Share -> 3. Web Location. Where your Live user is shown as logged-in, click "Not (username)". This logs out your account and pops-up the Windows Live login modal. Click 'Cancel' and you should be set.

Following solution worked for me.

1) Goto -> Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Mange your credentials, Clear the cached account for Skydrive. 2) Next time when you open OneNote , it will prompt for your credentials.
