Also, I can't get bridge to open images any more, I have to open the program and then open the image from there - what happened to bridge with CC 2015? I use it a lot...
And now even though I'm signed in to bridge, I cannot access camera raw as a qualifying product has to launch first...open PS, open image, open camera raw filter, still no go - have to then close down bridge and restart to get to camera raw via bridge.
I do not like this at all, I'm paying for the product - and have been for a number of years, but now I'm locked out unless I go through the rigmarole of signing in, do I have to spend another day uninstalling and reinstalling or is there a simpler solution?
Please try disabling the Sync settings in the CC desktop app. Creative Cloud Help | Sync application settings with Creative Cloud.
However, if you want to downgrade the CC application to CS6, please refer to this KB doc. Download and install Adobe Creative Cloud apps for help.
Thanks Aadesh, I had already disabled syncing and have actually uninstalled everything, used the acrobat cleaner and then reinstalled it all, as far as the CC app (just CC) goes - I can only download the 2015 version, there are no earlier ones available.
Adobe Desktop Service.exe runs regardless of whether or not syncing is enabled or disabled.
Under services I also have Adobe Acrobat Update Service running - I tried to remove this when I uninstalled CC as I wanted to get rid of every bit of Adobe so I could start afresh - is this a necessary service / part of CC?
When I quit CC, these processes continue to run.
I don't know if coresync is linked to syncing, I certainly disabled syncing.
