After an adobe cloud update I saw a lot of new applications on my dashboard. I just want to check if this is normal, or maybe mallware. The new applications on my deshboard are called: Creative cloud helper (twice) , creative cloud desktop app, CC troubleshooter (twice), CCXprocess and Core Sync. 

 

Thanks.

You're seeing these in your Creative Cloud Desktop app??

Did you restart your computer after updating CC?

Ah, I think that is the Dashboard. Apple gave up the Dashboard in Catalina, but you see much the same thing in Launch Pad. Yes, this finds any kind of app in your system, even ones which aren't usually used. It's normal. Some of these you use constantly (like Creative Cloud Desktop), some you may never use (like Creative Cloud Uninstaller).
