Adobe CEF Helper.Exe running in Processes

I have 4 instances of Adobe CEF Helper running all the time.  Each using a different amount of memory. CPU usage goes from 48% down to Zero and then fluctuates up and down.  Ending the process works for 5 seconds, then they start up again.  Creative Cloud is running in the background, because I lose all my Adobe fonts if it's not, but no other Adobe programs are active.  There are many Adobe processes running:

Adobe Desktop
AdobeIPCBroker
AdobeUpdateService
CoreSync
CCLibrary
Creative Cloud Helper
CreativeCloud

Why do so many of these processes need to run when nothing is active.  I can understand how the process will start when I run Photoshop or Dreamweaver, but why don't they close when the program closes.  These processes eat more memory than all the others that are running.  Adobe Desktop eats 265,000 k.  Just one instance of CEF Helper eats 116,000 k the other 3 eat 201,000k  combined. Google searches show many posts but few solutions.  One suggested the CEF Helper couldn't write to a log file and suggested a search into User/appdata/local/Adobe/Creative Cloud/log to see if the folder was there.  It's not.  There is no Creative Cloud folder under Adobe in appdata/local. 

 

Does anyone have a solution or a suggestion?  Thank you.

Thank you for expressing it well.  There are precious few reasons that could be invented to explain why a helper, update etc program keeps running when there is nothing running to help or update.  Adobe programs should be designed to shut down cleanly and completely.  Memory is always in short supply - wasting it is ridiculous and sloppy.
