    Hope there's some OS serivces experts out here :) I don't like running Machine Debug Manager when I'm not utilizing any VB apps. So I have it disabled in my service panel, and lately with my fresh install I've been carefully watching my event viewer. In it I find DCOM calls going out to MDM - and I'd like to find a way to stop it. I realize this is just a minor annoyance, but I'm the curious tweaker type - so any help/advice is appreciated.

    The exact message I'm getting in Event Viewer:

    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:
    {0C0A3666-30C9-11D0-8F20-00805F2CD064}
