Yes, I can assume that, but what does it do? Or because it was running in the background without any adobe application open? It is the first time that I see it and from what I deduce it appeared after it was updated

if Adobe webinstalle reappears in your processes, disable adobe reader auto-updates to see if that stops it from reappearing on computer restart.

Can you confirm for me, although I practically think I already know, that this process was not a virus and is something from Adobe?
