Adobe GC Client Applilcation.exe causes constant high CPU usage

This is a problem I've seen before.  I'm on Windows 10, running Creative Cloud for the occasional time I need Photoshop and a few other programs, and there's a process "Adobe GC Client Application (32 bit).exe" that is continually running and eating up 25% of the CPU (as noted in Task Manager and Resources Monitor). On my laptop, that causes my fan to continually run high, and is generally annoying.


How can I decrease the load of this Adobe program on the CPU?  It is quite annoying, and leads to a general feeling that Adobe's software is bloating my system.


Thank you for any help.
