This is a license related service for software distributed by TURBOSQUID. It seems quite harmless to me.

DCPFLICS is the local license server service for TurboSquid software (usually for 3D Studio Max plug-ins).
This appears to be part of a licencing service for pluginsand helpers for 3D studio max... I.E. Afterburn is an effects helper in 3ds max, as well as TurboSquid is well known in the Max user's arena.

A license service for 3DS Max 3rd party plugins. There should be a DCPFLICS_tools.exe found in the same location (at least of the current version of this software) which can be used to disable the service ans prevent it from running.

afterburn 4.0
It kept popping up with an Windows Interactive Reporting error box. I tried to install AfterBurn and DreamScape 2.5d from my own server and kept getting a recurring error... Eventually cancelled it, then dragged it to the Recycle Bin-- ultimately deleting it with CCleaner.

Best practices for resolving DCPFLICS issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with DCPFLICS. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the DCPFLICS.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
