    Howdie.
    I hope you don't think that MDM.EXE is a virus, because it is not, it's a legitimate Windows component: http://www.processlibrary.com/directory?files=mdm.exe. Only that it is supposed to be in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\<Version> , not in C:\Windows . So this occurrence is a virus, not any of them... It is a well known strategy of virus writers to impersonate legitimate files on the computer.
    According to the message you posted, I understand you are using a version of Symantec antivirus... Too bad you didn't post any details about it. Anyway, is it updated to the day? If not, run the LiveUpdate and try to clean the virus.
    I would also suggest you try one of the online antivirus sites:
    - TrendMicro: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
    - BitDefender: http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html

    There are probably more, these two I know and appreciate.
    Keep us posted.

        thanks

        AGAIN, why are you unable to use to resolve something really simple like this? Considering you list yourself as a Network Admin, using Google sould be a cinch. In the past I have even posted the links to Google in ALL the languages that Google uses in your country, so what is the problem?

        Post in Google search window, MDM.EXE+trojan and see what the 9th Wonder of the World displays.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2
