Network DDE

 

Windows XP Pro x64

Default Description

Provides network transport and security for Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) for programs running on the same computer or on different computers. If this service is stopped, DDE transport and security will be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.

Additional Information

I have not found a good use for this service. Unless you use remote ClipBook, disable it. This uses about 1.5 MB idle.
