Adobe Customization Wizard

I recently noticed that RdrCEF.exe was clocking close to all of my CPU cycles. This is a cloud service built into Adobe Reader DC, which constantly sends all kinds of information to Amazon. Leaving all the privacy concerns aside, my computer became inoperable by opening a PDF document. Okay, here's how you fix this.

  • Download the Adobe Wizard, most likely the version for Adobe DC.
  • Put on your robe and your wizard hat.
  • Get yourself your preferred Adobe DC Installer, and make sure it's the MSI version.
  • Use the Wizard to open the MSI and do this:

    Adobe Wizard Removes Cloud Services

  • Save the MSI and install your new AdobeDC.

Of course, feel free to customize your AdobeDC installer in any other way.

    For some reason, this solution only worked for about a month. I now deleted RdrCEF.exe and replaced it by an empty text file with the same name. While savage and not as fun as the customization wizard, this seems to have worked much better.
