Ws2help.dll contains functions used by the Windows API and is tied to the Windows Sockets 2 (Winsock). Winsock allows programmers to create advanced intranet and internet applications that transmit data across the network independently of the network protocol currently in use.
Ws2help.dll is used by programs and applications that use TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol of the Internet Protocol) and Winsock adds functions where necessary when TCP/IP is not supported.
Winsock follows the Windows Open System Architecture (WOSA) model and it defines a standard Service Provider Interface (SPI) between the Application Programming Interface (API) and the protocol stacks.
Ws2help.dll creates stability in the Windows operating system by augmenting the needed balance in the network funtions present in a large number of programs. Ws2helpl.dll is marked as a system process and is included in the Windows operating system so if it becomes corrupt or is force stopped Windows will become unstable and crash.
What is a DLL?
Dynamic Link Library (DLL) files contain computer code and resources that can be used by multiple programs at the same time. This wastes very little memory which makes your system much more efficient. DLL files allow program developers to reuse code to make changes and add features to several programs without having to write new code for each one.
Many programs depends on DLL files to function properly so when one is damaged or missing it leads to programs crashing and poor system performance.
