Adobe CEF Helper high CPU usage whilst idle. No CC apps open... HELP

I have a 2015 Macbook Pro Retina 13", i7,16GB - and I've noticed Adobe CEF Helper is using 13-18% CPU whilst no CC apps are open.

I have signed out, quit and relaunched Adobe CC app and signed back in. This temporarily fixed the problem and lower the usage to 0.1% (yesterday) today the problem has returned.

AND I haven't even used any CC apps today.

Why is this happening? Is there a permanent fix.

Thanks

P.S - I have all the latest updates installed.

I've noticed that if file syncing is turned off from the CC app, this reduces the CEF helper cpu usage back down to about 1%, though this shouldn't be necessary -.-

Iv'e been noticing this as well.  I have Photoshop installed on my Windows and Mac computer.  This is pissing me off and for this reason i'm canceling my subscription.

I'm sorry but I write software and no way in hell should a background process be utilizing 5% of my modern CPU.  I only use Photoshop for basic stuff, not worth this crap.  Iv'e been slowly uninstalling all Adobe products off my computer as they are major bloat ware and slow down your computer even when you don't use them.  I'll stick to Win8 or Chrome PDF reader, Gimp, Paint.NET ect or other Open Source software that don't do this simple stuff I need.

I'm having the same problem, Adobe CEF Helper is constantly using around 6.5%, and Creative Cloud around 1.5%. That's 8% and I haven't even opened a CC application since rebooting.

Mac Pro 3,1

Yosemite

Everything fully updated

Seeing the exact same thing. Latest Yosemite, latest Creative Cloud. Force-quitting Adobe CEF Helper via Activity Monitor puts it in its place for a while.

Aaaand the same here - just found it using 10-20%, nothing but the CC desktop app running in the taskbar. The earlier reports on these same forums, are from 2013 - I guess an old bug crept back in somehow.

Windows 7 x64 here, but that doesn't seem to matter.
