Hello everyone!
Today I downloaded Adobe Photoshop from filelist, and a couple new procceses appeared in Task manager:

2x Node.js: Server-side JavaScript
(one located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Creative Cloud Libraries\libs
and another one in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Creative Cloud Libraries\libs)

Core Sync (32 bit) (located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Sync\CoreSync)

CCLibraries ( in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Creative Cloud Libraries)

CCXProcces (inC:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Creative Cloud Experience)

These procceses are not using a lot of memory/CPU and I can close them.
Also, they appear only after launching Photoshop.

Are these procceses malware, or they are part of Photoshop?

You didn't download the program from the manufacturer website. You probably got some malware. Wipe your drive. Reinstall Windows. And then download from Adobe.

I will say the processes you listed look legit Adobe, though.
