Hi, I am a Kaspersky Internet Security user,

I have Adobe Creative Cloud installed on my computer and I think CoreSync is a part of their software but everytime I try to shutdown computer, a strange C++ class name like application is preventing the shutdown.

here is the screenshot:

Do you think it may be a harmful application disguising itself as adobe coresync?

After Uninstalling Creative Cloud, strange app is gone, but after reinstall it appeared again, so I guess its definitely Adobe App, I think I need to report it to Adobe, that one of their app with a strange and long name is preventing shutdown.

Hello @ergin,
Thanks for posting back🙏🏽.
I agree, definitely check with Adobe Tech Support.
From what I can see, this is a known (to Adobe) issue.
I would not recommend creating an exclusion for CoreSync
Please keep us updated?
Best regards.
Thanks Flood,

problem started recently,
Adobe Cretive Cloud is 4.9.0.504
windows 10 1903 18362.295
KIS and Creative Cloud licensed of course,
KIS 19.0.0.1088 (g)
I ran a full scan, no threat found.
Logs are clean.
