Can anyone tell me what this is and do I need it?

Checking out the 'shields up' site (thanks powerless)I can see that this program is keeping ports open even though I don't use it.

I don't use this program, is it safe to remove it?

Yes

Start, Run, type in

services.msc

and click OK

scroll down to NetMeeting, double click it and change Startup Type to Manual. That way it's there if you need it but won't autorun.
