The issue you are facing:
I want to disable E2E for one Desktop Access only. I have my account setup to protect one folder with E2E and it is working as expected. However, on one computer (Windows work computer). I do not want anyone that has access to that machine to have access to this folder, so I disable it from sync.

But it keeps asking me to enter the mnemonic when I have no desire to enable E2E on this one particular client. Therefore, the task bar icon keeps showing as a red X.

Is it possible to disable this one client for E2E access to get rid of the “configuration error” so I can have a proper icon in the task bar?
