The Adobe Desktop Service process is taking 7 GB of RAM: how can I disable it?

The gif below shows it is taking 7 GB of RAM (the computer has 16 GB of RAM, killing the Adobe Desktop Service process was taking 86-42=44% of it, which represents 0.44*16=7.0 GB):

I use Windows 7 SP1 x64 Ultimate.

Installed Adobe products:

  • I am sorry but based on what the gif shows I don't see where the 7GB RAM are mentioned. Adobe Desktop Service has a working set size of about 200 MB the of of about 500 MB how does that sum up to 7GB? The physical memory usage shows something complete different and includes caches so it is expected to be at 80 to 90%. There are hundred of similar posts here on Superuser asking effectively the same question...

    @MyDaftQuestions yes when the physical memory gets too busy, other programs start crashing. Jul 24 at 18:28
  • @Robert "it is expected to be at 80 to 90%" not at all on my OS. Jul 24 at 18:28
  • @Ramhound I did install some Adobe products. Do you need to know the specific Adobe products have installed? Jul 24 at 18:29
