What is machine debug manager in msconfig?
The Machine Debug Manager helps users debug application code (ANSI image by DBX60 from Fotolia.com)

The "msconfig" command opens the System Configuration Utility in most versions of the Windows operating system. The Machine Debug Manager is a process listed in the utility and is a normal part of the system's operation.


The Machine Debug Manager is a process associated with debugging application code. It normally operates in conjunction with Internet Explorer and works with the script debugging feature of the browser.


The Machine Debug Manager will appear in some instances of the "Startup" tab in the System Configuration Utility, either as "Machine Debug MGR" or "MDM.EXE." The actual "mdm.exe" executable file is located in the "Windows/System 32" folder in the root directory of the hard drive.


Only users who perform .NET debugging operations on their systems need to keep the Machine Debug Manager turned on. Other users can uncheck the option in the System Configuration Utility to prevent the utility from starting.
