After installing Photoshop, there are six Adobe processes running continuously on my computer:
Adobe Content Synchronizer
Adobe Content Synchronizer Finder Extension
Creative Cloud Content Manger.app
Creative Cloud Interprocess Service
Creative Cloud Libraries Synchronizer
How can I prevent these extraneous processes from running on my computer when I am not running Photoshop (or any other Adobe app)?
I only use Photoshop locally, so I have no need for Creative Cloud or synchronization. I dislike that these six processes run continuously on my computer even if I only use Photoshop for one hour a month. This behavior is more like a virus than like a carefully crafted software tool.
