Continuous CC crash and then goes to login screen. I have tried every fix scenario that I can find including uninstalling apps and creative cloud then re-loading. One proposed fix said to delete the Adobe User Profile Info and Adobe User OS Info and then restart Creative Cloud to create the files again. The only problem is these two files do not exist. The same files do exist on my MacBook Air and I don't have any problems. I haven't been able to get Creative Cloud to create these files on my iMac again. I believe I lost those files on February 14 during an Adobe or OS upgrade.
first, reset the cc app:
to reset the cc desktop app, make sure it's in the foreground, then press:
Win: Ctrl + Alt + R
Mac: Cmd + Opt + R
if that fails, try to repair
if that fails go ahead and uninstall/reinstall per the above link
if that fails, do a clean cc install following each applicable step:
uninstall every cc app including preferences, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-remove-app.html
then uninstall the cc desktop app, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-creative-cloud-desktop-app.html
clean your computer of cc files per http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html
check for, and if available, update your os
restart your computer (don't skip this)
reinstall the cc desktop app, https://creative.adobe.com/products/creative-cloud.
if you're unable to install the cc desktop app at this stage, use an administrator account (solution 4 here, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/creative-cloud-missing-damaged.html)
use the desktop app to install your cc programs/trials
I had to go through the full process and it worked. Thank you
My problem is back. The two Keychain User Info Files have disappeared again and now Adobe CC continues to send me back to the login screen.
you have something on your computer (eg, av, antimalware, cleaner, defragger etc) corrupting your files.
i don't know any easy way to track down what that is, but the fix is the same as before. it would be nice to prevent this from recurring by finding the culprit program.
I've gone through three uninstalls and clean installs since this last message. Everything is fine for a week or so and then it starts the login loop again. Everytime I go through a clean install my catalog on Lightroom gets all screwed up and it takes a lot of hours to get it straightened out. I can accept your reply stating that there may be something on my computer corrupting my files but I have no idea what it is. I've been playing around with this since early February with no solution in sight. What are my options for live software support?
you can try, but i'm not sure if they would have to time or inclination to dabble with your computer.

I think we may have found and fixed the problem, proxies that shouldn't be there. I turned them off but later they would come back on. It was malware and I had to to run a malware finder program to lactate it. I quarantined the malware and so far it seems to have worked.
good to hear (though i think lactate should be locate - spell check error?)
Oops. Yes it should be "locate".
(i'm mildly surprised/amused the adobe anti-obscenity checker didn't flag it.)
