Is there a way to control the status of startup processes?

Such as onedrive? It is enabled in our environment but I would like to disable it across the board, I see there is a command

gcim win32_startupcommand | ? {$_.caption -eq "onedrive"} | fl *

Caption               : OneDrive
Description           : OneDrive
SettingID             :
Command               : "C:\Users\test\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneDrive\OneDrive.exe" /background
Location              : HKU\S-1-5-21-2959385896-1550972142-1790183439-6801\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ru
                        n
Name                  : OneDrive
User                  : domain\user
UserSID               : S-1-5-21-2959385896-1550972142-1790183439-6801
PSComputerName        :
CimClass              : root/cimv2:Win32_StartupCommand
CimInstanceProperties : {Caption, Description, SettingID, Command...}
CimSystemProperties   : Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimSystemProperties

which shows the process, but not a switch like 'enable/disable'

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You need to delete that reg key to prevent one drive from starting up..
