    I found this about that file on another site

    Please Download LSPFix from http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.zip and Run the Program.
    Disconnect from the Internet and close all Internet Explorer Windows.
    Check the "I know what I'm doing" Button and remove all traces of ua_lsp.dll.
    Then Reboot.

    Reboot and delete the following file:
    ua_lsp.dll


    where else someone else said the following
    This "ua_lsp.dll", is to do with "Xfire". Uninstall Xfire, reboot and log in as Admin then install it. If you did install it as Admin and everything work's ok then leave it as it is or you will loose internet connection. You could alway's ask about it on the Xfire forum just to be sure xfire.com

    What makes you say xfire is spyware?

    I consider spyware as software that mines your data without prior consent. xfire is intended to mine gamer data and uses it to provide a service. I invited it in.

    It does mine other data but that is clearly defined in it's policy statement.

    The part I find highly offensive is that they have a read confirmation beacon attached to their emails. But since I send it to my anonymous yahoo account I t gets spam filtered and auto deleted.

    I am considering removing it but because I picked up some gaming instability after installing it.

    It is no worse than installing the MSN Zone or Gamespy. And serves as a Gaming Only IM Service.
