You can tell based on your actual examination of the code used and what they are for? Or this is just an assumption?

adobe genuine software integrity service
adobe genuine software service
adobe update service

these are running after a fresh restart

after using the creative cloud it gets much worse and stays like that even after closing the application.

Yes these are probably not needed to be executed with OS. At least if you don't need Creative Drive Sync and similar.

Thats what i thought. Autoupdate even is disabled but it starts nevertheless.
exactly the same with the notification manager (which is running after using CC)

so customer support told me that CC was using these processes in order to function, however after closing them manually it still launches and works fine.
im going to delete CC for now since i only use it for updating.
Can you tell me if theres a way to manually update?

And support told you could delete the files and you didn't ask them how to continue to update?
You really are asking for trouble!

So, they did not say delete. Running Windows? Bring up services, find thise, alter so they are stopped the alter so they do not automatically load. Mid you, check foe dependency’s, programs that need them running

Yes they did. They even gave me special tool to remove CC only while letting the apps be.
only understood half of what you are saying but ill look into services.
