Port 139 is the NetBIOS session service. The RPC port mapper is
listening on port 135/tcp, the actual RPC connections are established on
ports between 1025 and 5000 (49152 and 65535 on Vista and above). See
MSKB article 832017 [1] for an overview of the port requirements for
Windows.

Like I said: do not mess with it unless you have a clear understanding
of what it does (and how it works). RPC is required for many kinds of
remote management.
