How to stop any adobe background processes.

After installing creative cloud, to my dismay, and I'm sure many others, when you start your pc adobe applications are open in the background even if you explicitly tell creative cloud not to to start on launch in my task manager and in the creative cloud. This is a major design flaw, NO ONE should have to scour the internet for hours on how to disable them starting on launch. Despite all my time looking I could still not find an answer anywhere. Adobe needs to get their act together because this is ridiculous, background processes that can not be easily disabled (or disabled at all, Im assuming there must be some convoluted way to do it.) on startup is moronic. We're already paying an arm and a leg for your product, you could at least make the disabling of these applications easy to do. Of course this is adobe were talking about, logical changes arent what we're used to, just a flashy new ui for after effects each year.

Years and years later!

But I think I found an answer. I posted it in another section of the forum, and here it is here...

 

Are you a Apple user? If so, this works on my older Macbook Pro.

-In Finder, go to your hard drive (should show Applications, Library, System, and Users)

-Library (There are several Library folders. It has to be the one described at the top level)

-LaunchAgents - Delete (or carefully copy them out just in case) the Adobe related processes in there.

-LaunchDaemons - Delete (or carefully copy them out just in case) the Adobe related processes in there.

 

They still start up for me when I ACTUALLY open one of the Adobe softwares, but it keeps them from opening until I actually need them.

 

Fingers crossed, but for me, so far so good!

 

Credit goes to this genius right here:
