Information about mdm.exe file

File: mdm.exe
Name: Machine Debug Manager

Manufacturer: Microsoft
Risk factor (Virus/Trojan/Spyware): Rating

Mdm.exe is the Machine Debug Manager, which is used by the Windows NT Option Pack and Microsoft Developer Studio to provide application debugging. When Script Debugging is enabled for Internet Explorer 4.0, the debug manager is initialized whenever Internet Explorer 4.0 is started.

Note: The mdm.exe file file should appear only the C:\Windows\System32\ folder. If you happen to find this file in a different folder, it is possible that your mdm.exe is in reality a malicious file. Many trojans and viruses try to cloak their real identity by using the names of legitimate files. Any time that you encounter a suspicious process, you should verify the digital signature and the file path, for example using Anti-Spy.Info.

RatingUsed by developers for debugging. Those who have encountered it have unchecked it with no degradation in performance. May cause your computer to "hang" if you have MS Visual Studio installed and this disabled because it appears to take over error handling  link for more info [email protected]

RatingDer "Machine Debug Manager" läuft als Service und wird zusammen mit dem Microsoft Script Editor installiert. Wenn der Computer nicht für Debugging benutzt wird, kann dieser Service ohne weiteres deaktiviert werden. Bomania
RatingWhen I look into task manager's page faults field, I see that it keeps on increasing for MDM.exe. Anyways who needs script debugging, I simply checked the option "Disable script debugging" from internet explorer's advanced Internet options. Sandy

Ratingmachine debug manager, starting running whenever I run IE after installing Office XP, even though I HAVE the script debugging turned off in the IE options. Using task manager I can shut it down BUT it always tells me that it is not responding. I do not know of any way to stop it other than to remove the actual file itself. I'm running Win98 SE. The file is located in "...\common files\Microsoft shared\VS7Debug". Joey
Ratingim rinnin winxp home and havent downloaded anything lately and found mdm.exe runnin from this location C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VS7Debug. weird! ron

RatingJust an annoying valuable system resources gobbler. Disable/Quarantine it from Anti-Spy.Info's interface, or just delete the program altogether.  link for more info Risker
RatingThis file is not harmful in any way. It comes from any products having to do with Visual Studio [any version] from Microsoft. Terranwolf
RatingAs per metntioned it's from Microsoft. I also got this only yesterday and it keeps prompting. I tried to set the MDM in the Services to Disable and reboot my notebook and it still load by itself.. Not even found in the Task List. I follow Mark's link to "Answers That Work" site. Also recommends to set the service to Manual. It did also mentioned that the stupid MDM.EXE might have other ways of starting hence recommended to rename it to "MDM.EXE.OLD" and it works for me.  link for more info CCT

RatingWhen your pc crash and you restart your pc its damn slow but if you close windows down and restart your pc the problem is fixs Xextreem
Ratingseems harmless, but takes memory and startup time, so to disable: startmenu- run and type "services.msc", go to Machine Debug Manager and right-click and select properties, and where it says automatic, select disabled  link for more info kiwibird
