Creative Cloud is blank when opened

When I open Creative Cloud from the menu bar on my Apple desktop computer the screen is blank. If I go to uninstall and repair, then it works. It must be repaired almost daily. I realize that if I don't get that message and perform that function, then the blank screen appears. I long for the days of individual programs one could buy instead of renting.

I've done those things; uninstalled and reinstalled repeatedly. The problem persists, which makes me think it's Adobe not my computer.
