The Microsoft Machine Debug Manager – mdm.exe does not connect to the Internet itself and cannot trigger particular processes. However, it is still a rather ill-behaved program that leaves scads of temporary files on the hard drive that it never deletes and fails to unload properly.
On shared computers, when a user logs on a new instance of mdm.exe may start, but it won't necessarily exist when the user logs off. Depending on how many users have used the PC since the last reboot, dozens of copies of this program could be simultaneously running, eating up CPU and memory.
The file is known to cause crashes and fatal errors on some PCs using Dial-Up Networking. File mdm.exe is possibly related to Doly Trojan or other threats. That is possible, but you must check the system with anti-malware tools to make sure that is true before deleting anything yourself.
