Explanation (?):

The SNMP trap service allows a Windows server to collect information using the simple network management protocol. If you aren't aware of what it is, SNMP allows administrators to monitor and manage network performance. The point of this service is that it relays SNMP information to the programs interested in the information. If you are using SNMP traps then you should leave this set to automatic, and if you aren't then you should uninstall SNMP.
