So, I am not using any Adobe products apart from the flash player, which is only integrated in my browsers.

Still on every startup Coresync.exe keeps opening up with two(!) processes. after killing the process it comes back for about 3 times. Everytime it does, it freezes my i7-4790k with 100% CPU usage.

so... WTF!!!

I used the cloud cleaner tool, i tried installing creative cloud and deinstalling it. i tried to delete the file itself (it's located in temp) so no real use there. HELP PLEASE

That is not Adobe's coresync.exe. You have an infection. Look at some of the places it's trying to go. Or, you once had an infection, if the message says the file isn't found; this would be some remaining debris trying to run malware you have cleaned up.

If it goes into 100% CPU it's probably a bitcoin miner, stealing your computing power.

Sounds like you have a virus. There is one with this name.
