Guys you have a serious bug that makes me unable to continue using creative cloud until you solve it. Every time I launch a creative cloud app, a task called CEPHtmlEngine uses 100%+ of my CPU and basically destroys the fans on my macbook pro (2015 highest specs). The problem is all over google and it's definitely coming from Creative Cloud, so please solve it unless you want even more people abandoning Adobe for tools like Sketch and Affinity.

This issue should be fixed in the Creative Cloud desktop update (Version released on 04/12/2016) that went out over the past couple days:

If you don't have the update, you can restart either your computer or the CC desktop app to trigger the update.
