Why does creative cloud run so many processes when no Adobe apps are running?

I disabled all Sync features, and yet there are at least 8 processes running on my Mac related to Adobe.

I installed LightRoom and use it perhaps once a week—I want exactly 0 processes running from Adobe while I am not using the app.  Why is so much bloat included and which processes can be safely removed without rendering LightRoom inoperable?

Example processes:

  • Adobe Desktop Service
  • AdobeCRDaemon (2x)
  • AdobeIPCBroker
  • AdobeUpdateDaemon
  • CCLibrary
  • CCXProcess
  • Core Sync
  • Core Sync Helper
  • node

Why would you move this?  This is related to Creative Cloud the application... and is specifically related to not wanting a bunch of processes running from that application.

Bump.

 

The worst part is that somewhere along the way, they made the decision to force these processes to start any time the system reboots.  Thus, every time the system reboots, I must force kill all of them.  Plus, loading LightRoom doesn't even bring most of them back, so they are clearly totally unnecessary to LightRoom.

 

6 years, no response.  Bad stewards of our systems resources for your own selfish purposes.  I wish I could say I was surprised, but I'm not.  This maybe went into a backlog somewhere, but was chalked up as "Won't Fix" because most people don't know you're doing it.  Because only a handful of people have the skills to know/care, you feel justified to treat everyone poorly.  Typical.
