This event is sometimes seen on computers that are running VMTools (eg VMware guests). As the description says - "If you are using other VMware products... please ignore this message".

Well, that's all well and good, but why do I need to have this logged in the first place? Well, you don't. And you can stop it from happening by disabling the VMDebug service.
