Spoiler
 

How do you remove a disconnected iClouds Photos folder from Explorer. It recurs 13 times and wont enable a deletion?

Sorry, but since this is just a self-help Support Community staffed mostly by volunteers, we have no capability for debugging problems with third-party (i.e., non-HP) applications.

For help with iCloud issues, you have to contact Apple Computer.

This problem was on a PC in Windows 10.  I finally resolved the issue.  Thanks anyway.  It relates to iCloud running on a pc.

Used Regedit;

Searched for all Entries named iCloud Photos,

Deleted the Key: F0D63F85-37EC-4097-B30D-61B4A8917118, IF NOT FOUND delete f86fa3ab-70d2-4fc7-9c99-fcbf05467f3a

Export in case needed back;

Then searched all the Registry for the iCloud Photos for all instances, and changed ALL files which showed files set to 1 to 0 through the hole Registry.  Restart windows, and they should be gone.

This worked for me. 

CAUTION: I do not know what I am doing, but it worked.
