suggests to leave it alone, check where it is found on your system and check the properties of it, vendor etc if it is M$ then it is legitimate.

can I disable the ALCXMNTR.EXE if so how

To disable the process, go to RUN > MSCONFIG > Startup, and look for the entry there.
To stop it running the next time you boot, just untick it.
If you ever want anything back, then just tick the box again.
