Remove Creative Cloud Files from Windows Explorer


I’ve used Photoshop for years and have been using Lightroom.  Both are great products but lately Adobe has been including a link to Creative Cloud Files in Windows Explorer.  I’m not even sure what use it is. Maybe it’s useful for some people but I find it annoying.  Here’s how you remove the link in Windows Explorer.
Run regedit
Find “Creative Cloud Files”
Look for System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree

It’s value is most likely set to 1.  Change it to 0.
Close and re-open Windows Explorer. Creative Cloud Files should be gone.
You might have to reboot.

Every time Outlook 2013 is launched on a Windows Server 2008 R2 server through remote desktop this installation screen pops up. I tried uninstalling Office and re-installing it to no avail. After some poking around forums and web searches I ran across a suggestion to install Windows Search under the File services role. This fixed the issue. Open Server Manager and right click File Services under Roles, select add role services and check the Windows Search Service.
