As title states, I want to completely disable CC from starting up any of its services as my computer starts up.

 

I have:

  • Turned off "Launch Creative Cloud at login" and "Always keep Creative Cloud up to date".

  • Turned off Auto-update

  • Turned off startup in Task Manager

  • And I've blocked apps from running in the background via Windows 10 settings.

And yet still, without fail, everytime I turn on my computer and check Task Manager, Creative Cloud always finds a way to persistently run and sap away system resources.

 

Specs:

Windows 10
AMD Ryzen 5 3500U

Radeon RX Vega 8

8GB 

(note: this issue has persisted on past systems I've used Creative Cloud products on)

I disabled mine from Windows by going to  Settings > Apps > Startup.  Toggle apps on/off.
