event id 10005 dcom error message

Hi, I have a laptop running with Windows XP Service Pack 2. Don?t know why I keep getting this error several times a day in my 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}

Furthermore let me tell you that I MDM is disabled on my system because I read somewhere I guy saying it is not required on Windows XP based system. So any idea what could be causing that error message on my system so many times every day?

Thanks for all your helps.

RE: event id 10005 dcom error message

You need to open a run command and then type in: services.msc and then click ok, on the services control panel ensure this service is started automatically - Machine Debug Manager - Start Auto. It is located in the below path:
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VS7Debug\mdm.exe"

RE: event id 10005 dcom error message

Thanks but I know how to turn it on. The question that I am having is that why do I need it and why do I keep getting the error message all of a sudden? I have got computer for 6-7 months now and this is the first time I am seeing this kind of message so many times?

To determine the service vendor
  1. Using Regedit, navigate to the following registry value
    HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Service Name
    The service name is the information displayed in the message.
  2. In the right pane, double-click ImagePath.
    The Edit String dialog box is displayed. Leave this dialog box open. If Svchost.exe is displayed in the Value data box, then under the service name, navigate to the Parameters folder and then double-click ServiceDll.
  3. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
  4. Using the information displayed in the Value data box of the Edit String dialog box, navigate to the program.
  5. Right-click the program name, and then click Properties.
    The Properties dialog box for the program is displayed.
  6. To determine who the vendor is for this service, refer to the Version tab.
    You can also find the path to the executable file in this tool.
