AdobeIPCBroker and disgusting intrusive DRM

I purchased a plan to use Adobe products.

Now even thought I've shut down all programs and functions I still have AdobeIPCBroker.exe running in the background regardless of how many times I try to shut it off - not only that - the thing is sending packets  - as in actual data. This is - purely and simple - DRM. Please don't tell me that it's not DRM, don't tell me it's for my owns sake and that it's supposed to increase the user experience. Because it's not. It's partonizing and insulting to me as a user to treat me as a child when I in fact know very well what it is, how DRM works and why it's on my computer. It's Adobes way of making sure that their software that *WE* paid for is legit. I find this practice absolutely disgusting, repulsive and it shouldn't be allowed. I for one do not advocate piracy but if I cannot find a way to clear of this spyway/malware I am going with the piracy option. Because the piracy option offers something that the retail honest version doesn't - Adobe not spying on me for no good reason. This is appalling and they aren't enough words in the English language that can accurately and truly describe the absolute despicable practice that this is.

Isn't there a more likely explanation? Hint: the name of the process contains the answer.

lucky you only got AdobeIPCBroker.exe

my computer is filled with Adobe trash running in background since i start paying for a CC plan.

i've been spending a lot of time trying to block all the Adobe intrusive trash.

i was never expecting that Adobe would filled my computer with bloatware, spyway and malware.

what a damn fraud! 😕
