Gamebar process problem

Hey guys,i have a question. Do you know how i can prevent the '' Gamebar presence writer'' process from running everytime i play a game? I tried to do it from the Xbox app menu and from the Options Menu in the Windows 10  but neither works, When i play a game, even if i stop the process, it keeps re-running. Thank you
