The Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator is a transaction manager which permits client applications to include several different sources of data in one transaction and which then coordinates committing the distributed transaction across all the servers that are enlisted in the transaction. MSDTC runs on all Windows platforms and is installed by applications which need to use it, such as the Microsoft"s Personal Web Server, or Microsoft SQL Server.
Recommendation : If you have it running, it is most probably needed by a Microsoft Application, so leave it untouched unless it is definitely causing you problem. It is also part of Microsoft dot NET framework; requires server authorization of port. If you have VB6, SQL, this should be enabled, otherwise you could termporarily disable it.
