uninstall the HP Cloud drive stuff. You can't stop it or kill it - it just zombies along so the only choice is to delete the badly designed code -

To rid yourself of the fetid mess cd into:
C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Clouddrive (can't remember the exact dir name) and run the uninstall script, that will remove the odious POS.
