I noticed this file running under norton earlier, and I wasn't exactly sure what it was. I know rpc stands for Remote Procedure Call, but that's where my knowledge regarding this file ends.

Remote Remote Procedure Call Extension; rpcrtremote.dll is a 32-bit Dynamic Linked Library of code components which does not directly have a GUI. It is a PE style file, it does not appear to be internally referenced by any other file.
There are no known security risks in using Rpcrtremote.dll assuming it has not been modified or replaced by virus or malware and it resides in the default directory. This file is installed as part of the Windows operating system. Considering the fact that you have a good anti-virus software package installed on your computer, I highly doubt that it is in anyway, shape, or form malicious.
Basically, it's just the 32 bit version for the RPC 64 bit in the newer Windows versions.

It is a necessary Windows file, and its components are used by many applications in the system.
