Hi team, this has been said before, but it needs to be said again and again until Adobe stop fooling us around.

 

No matter what I do, I can't disable Adobe from starting many of its services at Windows start-up, or even exiting the CC Application. These services that are tied to CC have no purpose once the program is closed, except to monitor my idle system and to send information to your servers. This is a legitimate privacy concern. Not only this, but these services are using a considerable amount of system resources, (200MB RAM, as well as marginal CPU allocation) this limits the top level performance potential of my computer. I perform benchmarks for programs and games, and I need a clean system to achieve genuine results. Also, they're causing the system to boot and shut down more slowly than necessary, having pointless processes affecting my performance (and privacy) is extremely frustrating.

 

There is a setting within "Adobe CC Preferences" in which you can dictate whether Adobe CC launches with Windows. This would be great, except... It doesn't work, at all (For anyone, not just me).

 

- Adobe Genuine Monitor Service

- Adobe Genuine Software Integrity Service

- Adobe Update Service

- Adobe IPC Broker

- CCLibraries

- CCX Process

- Core Sync (This sends system related data to Adobe at all times)

- Creative Cloud Helper (Three isntances currently)

 

As a matter of fact, the only thing that the setting within "Preferences" actually disables, is just the UI launcher client from starting with Windows. Finally, to make matters worse, "Exiting" CC doesn't actually "Exit" anything, it simply hides the launcher (Even though there's already a dedicated button for that purpose!). Ya'll need to fix this immediately or i'm going actually going to have to resort to Github Powershell scripts that WILL OBLITERATE your treasured system monitoring.

Open powershell elevated as Administrator and type this to KICK CC's A$$:

 

Get-Process * | Where-Object {$_.CompanyName -match "Adobe" -or $_.Path -match "Adobe"} | Stop-Process

 

(This isn't a permanent solution)
