This doesn't sound good. When I first researched this I came up with something that said "questionable printer communications system". I've also noticed that every now and then my printer makes a sound like it's clicking on getting ready to print, even when I haven't given any command to print. I think this is a dangerous process. I'm going to quarantine it.

dlcccoms.exe belongs to Printer Communication System. It's a part of the Dell Photo printer software package. Should be located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\dlcccoms.exe
Its a Dell driver for the printer
Part of the Dell Printer software. Dell AIO 924 printers for sure. If you delete it you can not print with your dell printer. If you do delete it then uninstal and reinstal your printer software from your disk or download the file from dell and reinstall and you will be good.
It is not visible in c:\windows\system32, but you will see it if you go to task manager where you can end the process. I have deleted it since I no longer use Dell AIO 924 printer.

Best practices for resolving dlcccoms issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with dlcccoms. 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.
