Explanation (?):

The Adobe LM service provides license management for Adobe products. This service was originally implemented in Photoshop CS (version 8), but it is quite possible other Adobe products use it also. The actual purpose of the service is to enumerate hardware devices for product activation. So, if it detects the hardware it was originally installed on has changed then it asks for you to resubmit your registration to Adobe. This service cannot be disabled as it will reenable if you do so, so I suggest leaving it set to manual so it activates only when it is called on by Photoshop startup.
