i had a xlueops.exe, which accompany with a download software. the xlueops from google is just for commercial purpose.

whenever, i open the download tools, it will open too, and it use lots of CPU,

so how can i stop it , so whenever i use the download tools, this xlueops will not open/execute auto?

stop it will not affect my download tools function.

Find the file and RENAME it in Explorer is probably the easiest way. Renaming it because IF it is required, you can rename it back. Googling the program name seems to only find Japanese pages on it? The few English ones say it is safe, but not anything else?

There is always the possibility that whatever is using it will discover it isn't loaded and recreate it though. If that happen, other measures might be needed, but it looks like it might be part of a game?
