Similar to other threads here I am having high CPU usage from Creative Cloud (Adobe Desktop Service.exe). It is sitting at around 30%. I have followed ALL of the various instructions on other threads, removing everything, cleaning, renaming folders, rebooting, re-installing, disabling sync,cleaning, removing, re-installing etc. all to no success.
My system details are:
Windows 10 Professional x64, fresh install, fully updated.
Creative Cloud 188.8.131.52.
NO other CC applications installed.
NO antivirus software installed.
Would love a solution so that my laptop battery can last the 3 hours it is supposed to instead of the 1 hour I am getting because of this faulty software.
Open the CC DTA and then click the Gear Icon in the upper right hand corner and select Quit from the Popup menu.
The CC DTA does not need to be running all the time for all the other apps to work. Just open it when you want to install, uninstall and app or to check for updates. Then Quit it to shut that service down.
Hey, thanks! I wrongly assumed it had to be running...
Your answer didn't quite work as the CPU hogging task stayed active after quitting the CC DTA, but it was the right idea. I just murdered it in the task manager and now my laptop isn't causing global warming anymore
Now if Adobe could fix whatever horror bug they've introduced that would be great...
(Not sure on etiquette here - do I mark your answer as correct or do we wait for something that fixes the root cause rather than hides the symptom?)
Creative Cloud 184.108.40.2065 is ok.
Creative Cloud 220.127.116.11 has occurred problem.

Same problem on my machine, installed Creative Cloud a couple of days ago.
CPU is high (20%) even when the ADS (desktop app of Creativ Cloud) is idling, causing the fan to be constant on.
Quitting the desktop application, and also killing the running task with the task manager, calms down my PC.
Windows 10 running a Dell XPS 15.
Same problem on the Mac side. I doubt it's a bug if it's affecting both platforms. I guess it is a non stop attempt at communicating with Adobe by the Adobe Desktop Service app.
I turned off the sync for applications and fonts yesterday. The machine was shut down for the night but today the problem is still here. Only solution I found: sign out from my account and sign in again when needed. It's a pain but at least the usage and the temperature don't go up.
There was a thread started by another Mac user but it was deleted yesterday. Let's hope Adobe is working on a solution to the problem.
MacPro 2013, macOS Sierra 10.12.3.
Also seeing this issue,
Any news on how to fix this?
I have the same issue. Is this accepted a bug by Adobe ?
Same issue here on my Surface Pro 3 i5, but NOT on my desktop i7 computer.
Why does this answer have to be dropped as a PM and not on the main thread? Not good.
This issue is fixed in latest version of Creative Cloud 18.104.22.168. You can download the latest version from https://creative.adobe.com/products/download/creative-cloud
That fixed the problem, thanks!
I'm still having the same problem. As you auggested I downloaded and installed the update but CCD just started up again and was using 24% CPU.
Thank You For Fix This Issue.
