Thank you for the slapped wrist. The screen shots merely show what I have stated in the text.
From the lack of replies are you telling me that at Adobe, one of the world's foremost tech companies, there is not a single person that can help me with this weird issue with the company's own software? Not one??
Given the amount of money I hand over every month, I find that incredibly disappointing.
Startup items isn't a place for you to control everything that starts. It's for you to add and manage extra apps. There are various ways in which an app or process can be started at boot or login time, and you aren't expected to mess with this, because developers don't test a random mix of stuff running. Bottom line, Adobe intended the CC app to start every time, and do not give any supported way for you to stop this. If you mess with it you may break it (but you're free to try if you know what you're doing!)
