Do you mind killing this process to stop? Is it Internet Download Manager?

Please see my comment to the question. If you don't mind killing this process: the method Process.Start will return an instance of System.Diagnostics.Process:
System.Diagnostics.Process process = System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(/* ... */);

//...

//later on:
process.Kill();


If what you start is really an Internet Download Manager, it will certainly stop downloading :-).
However, this is not nice; and you won't know which of the files was only partially downloaded as you broke it in the middle.

Generally, using Process.Start is not a developer's approach. A real software developers will use its own downloading code embedded in your application, which is actually much simpler because you can get a full access to the functionality and progress. In contrast to the situation with external processes: they are well isolated; you cannot do much for controlling them.

Please see my full source code for HttpDownloader, use it the way you like: how to download a file from internet[^].

This application has a special feature: an ability to continue incomplete download later, starting from the same place.
