Elements Auto Creations 2021 crashes even though Generate Auto Creations is turned off

MacBook Air M1, Monterey.7, Photoshop Elements 2021

I do (have) not use(d) Elements Auto Creations 2021 or Adobe Elements 2021 Organizer at all.

In January 2022, I turned off the "Generate Auto Creations" preference setting (i.e., unchecked the checkbox) in AEO. I have just confirmed that its checkbox is unchecked.

Regardless, Console.app's Crash Reports include multiple entries for Elements Auto Creations 2021 and PhotoshopServer (most recently an hour before the time of this posting) even though I have not launched or otherwise used Photoshop Elements 2021 or Adobe Elements 2021 Organizer.

How can I prevent these repeated crashes (how can they even be happening since I have not launched AEO)?

Many thanks in advance!

Here are the Crash Reports entries…

If you go to Apple>System Preferences>Users&Groups>Login Items, do you see the Elements Auto Creations listed?

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for asking; no, it's not in Login Items (although many other apps are).
