We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
I was wondering why does Adobe want us to download CC that bad, this applications constantly run a lot of background processes (even when we quit it).
So i'm just wandering, can I uninstall CC when I don't need to download any Adobe softwares?
If you are using a subscription you need to have the CC Manager installed.

That's not true. You can remove the CC Desktop app with the CC Cleaner Tool and everything works fine except the ability to update to new versions of applications. Minor updates are still handled through the older AAM method, so, so, so much better. When you need to install a new version of an application, you will unfortunately have to install that POS, malware-like, irritation called CC Desktop. Just run CC Cleaner Tool again afterwards to rid yourself of it.
CC Desktop is a total piece of junk.
Here is the CC Cleaner Tool. Make sure you only select the Desktop app:
thanks for this post, i didn't know about this tool _

Huge kudos here! Using this, I was finally able to remove those pesky background processes. I also use my machine for lots of multitrack recording with real-time effects, and what Adobe fails to realize is that all these background processes actually DO have an impact on a machine, even on modern high-performance hardware.
ADOBE: You need to get rid of all the noise and go back to a more streamlined approach, even for "subscription based" models. There's a ton of strategies for keeping licenses in check and software updated that don't require running multiple background processes. Shame on you.
