Windows 7: Machine Debug Manager(MDM) Crashing error, yet I can not find it

Machine Debug Manager(MDM) Crashing error, yet I can not find it-mdm.png

Ever since two weeks age, I have this program crashing within 0.5-2 hours after I turn on my machine. I can not find it anywhere, not in processes, services, startup, registry, searched for mdm.exe in C: and no results. I have tried this KB which is relating to Window XP, didn't solve it. I've ran Systeminternal's Autoruns and it wasn't there either!

I'm afraid it start after I installed some old abandonware games, all are removed and deleted since then. How do I get rid of it or disable it?

I've monitored and found what triggered mdm, it was something in VLC's cache (?), I deleted the folder and uninstalled VLC Player. Can anyone guess what those things mean? How can something in VLC's cache trigger all the system's DLLs? And cause a crash after that?
