What to do if mdm.exe is not responding

A general guide for all versions of Windows, including XP, Vista, Windows7, 8 and Windows 10

What to do if mdm.exe hangs up?

The typical situation is: you "click on something", Windows appears to be frozen, and after several seconds (or minutes, if you are really lucky :-), the (un)famous message appears: mdm.exe is not responding and will be terminated.

This problem is more serious in older versions of Windows, say XP (which you should not use either). Modern Windows can often recover and mostly you can simply start mdm.exe again and continue in your work.
However, if the problem persists, you can try this two quick solutions:

  1. Start task manager and kill the mdm.exe in it
  2. restart Windows

Still in troubles?

If the process is freezing again and again, it indicates a deeper problem in your system. So, here comes a time to do some DYI Windows maitenance:

  1. Check your system with this powerfull specialized utility: EUROBYTE TOOLS
  2. You can also try to run a check disk - often the software freezes just because of the disk error - when the process cannot read the data from the hard disk. This problem became less common with SSD disks, however, it is a safe move.
  3. Another reason for not responding issue may be frozen internet connection - test it as well.
