Mystery wpclsp.dll DLL

When running Hijackthis, I received the following:

Unknown file in Winsock LSP: c:\windows\system32\wpclsp.dll

Anybody know what wpclsp.dll is for? Perhaps it's new to Vista but a
search shows little to nothing about it. The properties reveal it's
registered to Microsoft as a WPC (?) LSP (Layered Service Protocol)?

Re: Mystery wpclsp.dll DLL

I would be extremely careful about running older programs like HJT in
Vista. HJT log interpretation takes a lot of skill to start with (and
I'm not dissing your mad skilz since I don't know what they are) and
Merijn hasn't redone HJT for Vista. Some Googling around indicates that
this file is probably part of Vista.

Unless you have some other reason to suspect that your computer is
infected, I wouldn't worry about it.

Steam, the Valve Corporation's Propriety Online-Gaming platform, when running a Connectivity scan detected this module and said it was the "ShopAtHome adware". I realise this is an old thread and I'm sorry for bumping it up but I felt this information was relevant. Since this thread is one of the first links that pops up when someone types "wpclsp.dll" into Google I felt that this would be a good place to tell people it could be potentially spyware/adware.

I say potentially because Steam could have got it wrong similar to Hijackitthis. But since it is now nearly 10 months since Windows Vista's release I think it should recognise whether it's a part of windows vista or not at this time. The thing is that none of my adware/spyware/virus scanners detected it so I don't know whether to delete it or not.

I'd like to hear you guys' advice on it; whether I should delete it or not. Steam suggested I should delete it as it says it can interfere with some of my Steam games.

You probably already know by now, but this is a part of Parental
Controls.
