Flie Name: mdm.exe Product:
Author: Microsoft Corp. Security Rating:

The mdm.exe process is the Machine Debug Manager of Microsoft Winodws Operating System. It appears in your task list if you have recently installed Microsoft software kits, like Visual Studio or Visual Studio Express, or SQL server management software. It is loaded when your computer starts and is used by the Windows NT Option Pack and Microsoft Developer Studio to provide application debugging, for instance, debug Internet Explorer errors by using a script interface tool.

Recommendation:

The mdm.exe process is a user invoked program and a normal part of PC operations. It is safe and is not considered as mailware. Normally, the mdm.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. In other cases, mdm.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm! If you do not use your computer for debugging purposes, you can safely turn this off.

If you have used scripts or any part of visual studio or components you get this file. It's part of what lets you edit and debug any form of programming, and part of the runtime packages. It does nothing except report code errors when they occur. It also opens a debug tool to fix the error, but you can make changes only if the code is yours.

Perhaps trustworthy, but this link I found says it is buggy, and has info on how to disable it. It is not just Visual Studio, but also part of Internet Explorer used for debugging IE errors.  More information

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. The Machine Debug Manager runs as a service and is loaded when your computer starts. If you do not use your computer for debugging purposes, you can safely turn off the Machine Debug Manager
