I thought my issue was isolated but looks like it is happening to others. My Adobe Genuine Software Service (32 bit) is also taking up CPU usage, it is constantly between 20 and 25%. Already tried to remove it, repaired it, sfc /scannow, but no luck. Appreciate any input here from Adobe support. thanks.
I spoke with support about this and they had me reboot the PC and the processes dropped down to 0% usage then. That stopped the spike but of course a reboot is not a fix. I ended up stopping and disabling the two services. So far no problems and I don't have to tell users to reboot.
