Any clue why I would need SEVENTEEN background processes running AFTER quitting ALL Adobe apps?

I'm honestly at a loss here. I have my computer set up to run NOTHING related to Creative Cloud on boot.

 

Earlier, I open Photoshop (NOT CreativeCloud, NOT an installer... Photoshop.) and use it for seriously less than 5 minutes to add a label and a header to a static, still screenshot.

I then take a screenshot of THAT (meaning I didn't export it, I didn't even open a save dialog), paste the results into Slack, switch back to PS and close the application, selecting Don't Save on its way out.

 

A few moments later, I note my processor seems ate up about something. I open Activity Monitor and I have SEVENTEEN Adobe processes eating close to 20% of my CPU and a half GIG of memory!? For WHAT!? I have it set NOT to auto-install updates, so that's out... I have never run CC intentionally or voluntarily in the first place... I haven't given ANY Adobe App permission to view ANYTHING on my drive beyond ONE (currently empty) folder, so it's not indexing anything (and I use the classic startup view, besides)...

What in gods' name is eating 20% of an i9 processor and 2.5x the memory of EXCEL, a non-native, known-to-be-bloatware app (which, incidentally, has a 49,000-row, 14-column document loaded and is IN THE FOREGROUND), especially when it's not (supposed to be) even RUNNING!?

 

Is there some trick I've missed? How do I CLOSE this thing without having to resort to Activity Monitor or HTOP? Do I seriously need to write a lsof/taskkill CLI script to clean up after this nonesense every time I close the app?
