More information please. What operation system are you using?  Under what circumstances did not find "mdn2.exe"? Is this the exact spelling?

Found something about it being from John Madden NFL 2000 but highly unlikely.

Have you recieved a file named myvid.exe in e-mail because if so you may have a virus named backdoor.doly
this causes the following:
If you attempt to start the Windows Registry Editor, you see the message "The Administrator has denied you permission to this service."
If you are running Windows 98 and you try to run MSConfig, you cannot do so because the Msconfig.exe file has been deleted

The link for sorting this is below:

Hope this helps :-)

Locate the file in question. Right-click on get Properties. Go to version tab; this tells information on the file including author/company.

If this tab is blank or not present the file is questionable and should not be allowed to run as a process. Rename it and see what complains.

The OS is Win 2k. I noticed yesterday when I turned on my computer that a screen flashed indicating that program mdn2.exe has started. I have now found also file mdn.exe. Both live in C:\program files\common files. They are both 298,496 B. Norton Anti Virus does not find anything wrong with them. They do not have any author information. I can run regedit.exe with no problem. Shall I just delete them? Disability them does not seem to affect the system at all. Many thanks for all replies.

Blumfeld,

If mdn2.exe don't affect anything, rename the file, don't delete it right away.

Best wishes, war1
