Creative Cloud is using 40% of my CPU

Either Creative cloud (32 Bit) or Adobe Genuine Software Integrity Service is using my CPU all the time and I don't know why.

This is my situation for about a year now.

It is not 100% of cpu. But my hardware fans are making noise.

I created a .bat to kill all Creative Cloud processes, and when killing all, the fans instantly stop spinning.

But sooner or later Creative Cloud restarts itself.

Anyone else is having this problem? Is this a normal behaviour?

Looks like it has to do something with the "Elements" tab in the creative cloud app.

The wheel "searching update" is spinning all the time, and the memory usage is going up (memory leak).

After 5 Minutes of waiting the wheel is still spinning and the memory is at 1GB.

The app is up to date (reinstalled just yesterday).

I can't change the state of sync. The hark is grey and can't be clicked.

I cleaned and reinstalled everything. Now I was able to turn off the snyc of files and fonts:

But the main problem remains: A creative cloud process called "Adobe Desktop Service.exe" (not the creative desktop app) is still running with 28% of CPU time, and memory is bleeding. From time to time the creative cloud process starts itself, because ram usage is going too high:

Here the creative cloud process stops and restarts itself (at about 1 Gig of ram):
