Recently I was forced to reinstall my OneDrive client and currently I'm using OneDrive 2016 (17.3.6798.0207) and Office 2013 Home (15.0.4903.1002) on Windows 7 Pro SP1 EN.
After re-installation I noticed some kind of strange integration between OneDrive and Office. And weird things (never observed before) started to happen:
(never seen before re-installing OneDrive, while I've been using it for about 2-3 years)
The second one is specially annoying, because in the very same time OneDrive claims that I'm all set and that all my files are up-to-date.
I'm 100% positive that:
I'm not logged into Microsoft Account in my Office and my Office is not connected with my OneDrive. Because:
File > Account
Create an account
My OneDrive for sure was updated / changed toward what I've been seeing before; I no longer see Pause sync item in context menu, but I do see never seen before View sync problems item (could missed it previously though).
View sync problems
I have never seen these messages / features ever (before reinstalling OneDrive) and I'm using it on daily basis, quite intensively.
Since first point (and partially -- third one) clearly proves that my Office is not logged into my Microsoft account or my OneDrive then I completely don't understand how Office is able to perform anything on my account / in my OneDrive?
What is this functionality? Why / when it was enabled? Can I somehow disable it?
I'd like to have OneDrive working as usually -- i.e. in a complete separation from either Office or any other program. That it would pick a file modified by any file on any computer and either upload it to cloud or download a local copy from there. Without any integration with anything. Is this possible?

► complete the sentence: my question is about...
► use tags that describe things or concepts that are essential, not incidental to your question
► favor using existing popular tags
► read the descriptions that appear below the tag
If your question is primarily about a topic for which you can't find a tag:
► combine multiple words into single-words with hyphens (e.g. windows-7), up to a maximum of 35 characters
► creating new tags is a privilege; if you can't yet create a tag you need, then post this question without it, then ask the community to create it for you
