Event Properties: DCOM got error


OSNN One Post Wonder

My system freezes when burning a cd or doing a virus scan. I checked the system event log and got the following error:

DCOM got error "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " attempting to start the service MDM with arguments "" in order to run the server:

What is MDM? And why is it crashing me system?

mdm.exe is the machine debug manager from Microsoft. It is notorious for crashing and slowing down machines, as well as sucking CPU usage. You can safely disable this feature by doing the following:

Open up Internet Explorer
go to Tools Menu
Internet Options
Advanced Tab
Click to check Disable Script Debugging checkbox

Also, remove the instance from the registry. As always, backup the registry before proceeding:

Start Regedit, which is done by clicking start - run - type "regedit" without quotes.
Navigate and find the following key -


In the right pane, delete the entry with mdm.exe

Reboot PC, should be all set. Post back with questions/problems.
