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](https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1811609). 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](http://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/Wizard/), most likely [the version for Adobe DC](http://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/Wizard/WizardDC/basics.html). * Put on your robe and your wizard hat. * Get yourself your preferred [Adobe DC Installer](ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/AcrobatDC/1500720033/), and **make sure it's the MSI version**. * Use the Wizard to open the MSI and do this: [![Adobe Wizard Removes Cloud Services](/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/wizard-300x213.png)](/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/wizard.png) * Save the MSI and install your new AdobeDC. Of course, feel free to customize your AdobeDC installer in any other way.

As some of you might know, I got my first mobile device now and started playing around with it. Today, I need to rant, because I lost 79 cents. When you buy an app on the amazon app store, you can no longer use it after you uninstall the amazon app store. Other android users also hate the amazon app store because it is an obnoxious app which is mean and does not let you use apps which you paid for with money after you get rid of the data-leaking abomination it is. Do not use it. I simply bought ownCloud on the humble, trustworthy google play store again. I have no time to deal with amazon over those 79 cents. But I have time to write this scornful post.
