    That's the Microsoft Remote Procedure Call Service. I'm not really familiar with it, but if you want to learn more, google is always ready.

    It's a regular windows file but this doesn't mean it cannot be infected!!
    Run a decent virusscanner just to make sure!

    I agree with SirDice, just ran a check on symantec's website for viruses/backdoors that include rpcss and this is what I found:

    You might want to also read up on the list of vulnerabilities associated with rpcss from symantec or another related site.
