    Detailed Steps and How to Use / Setup / Go Through the Steps

    1. Check Connectivity: Make sure that the issue is not with connectivity. Check for firewalls, VPNs, Chrome extensions, or ad-blockers that might be blocking the connection to Adobe servers.

    2. Create a New User Account: On your Mac, go to System Preferences, search for Users & Groups and create a new account.

    3. Log Out and Log In: Log out of your current account and log in with the new account you just created.

    4. Uninstall Adobe Creative Cloud: While logged in as the new user, follow this link to the Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool, select the appropriate version for your Mac, download and install it. This tool will uninstall Adobe Creative Cloud.

    5. Log Out and Log In as Main User: Log out of the new user account and log back into your main account.
