Excessive background apps running for Creative Cloud [Windows 10]

See screenshot below:

4 instances of CEF Helper

2 instances of Collaboration Syncronizer

2 different versions of "Genuine Software" service

Separate updaters for CC and Acrobat

 

All of these are always running, even with no Adobe apps launched since last reboot.

 

Is this the same for all users, or am I having a problem specific to my installation?

If the latter, is there a way to fix it?

 

I understand that the old fragmented Adobe environment is incrementally consolidating under the CC framework (ie, Acrobat is still barely integrated), but I wonder if it's littering these always-on services as it goes.

 

None of the background exe's are putting noticable drag on the system at the moment, but I'd like to clean up if that's an option.
