hpqcxs08.dll is part of hp digital imaging - hp all-in-one series by Hewlett-Packard located in C:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\bin\hpqcxs08.dll.
If the computer owner has never installed an HP imaging device, then it's reasonable to presume this is malware disguised as a legitimate file. It certainly won't hurt to remove it if there is no HP product attached, but who knows what it could be doing if you leave it!
Was in my services and disguised as HP software.
