    Creative Cloud causing loss of Window Focus and preventing screensaver from running?


      I am running Windows 8.1, and have been very annoyed lately with an intermittent loss of window focus. Any window I am working in would quickly lose focus and then regain it.  Frequently I would be entering data into a field, and, while typing, the loss and recapture of focus would cause me to type over/replace everything I had just typed.  Also, my screensaver would not run.  Screensaver preview would work, but the screensaver never ran on its own.


      After a few hours of Internet searching, and by using some Windows tools, I discovered a plethora of system errors related to CoreSync.exe.  This executable is part of Adobe Creative Cloud.  I uninstalled Creative Cloud, and now the problems have vanished.  Are there any known workarounds for this?  I do not want Creative Cloud installed if I have to put up with these issues.
