I thought that by installing a single program rather than the Creative Cloud software would make things better. Well, it doesn't. I've never seen a program requiring so many processes to run an installer. This is unacceptable.
Acrobat Pro DC will work independently without the Creative Cloud App, however the "Updates" are pushed from Adobe Server to the Creative Cloud App and if you do not have the Creative Cloud App installed, than you may need to Launch Acrobat, and go to Help > Check for updates.
