Adobe Creative Suite (CS6) is a collection of graphic design, video editing, and web development applications made by Adobe Systems.

Adobe sells Creative Suite applications in five different combinations called "editions", the Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection contains applications from all of the above editions.


Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is Adobe DNG Converter.exe. The software installer includes 27 files and is usually about 8 MB (8,389,015 bytes).
