Re: Slow performance following upgrade [SOLVED]

I've tracked this down to yet another Dodgy Application: "EMBASSY Trust

Didn't we know about that one?
Ah... indeed we did; the fingerprint reader. Dave, you missed one. :-)

This bring up an interesting thought. If chgcheck looks for this sort of thing, it would probably be a good idea to get the dll list of a process where that list is known (ok, that's just about any process :-)) and compare the list we get with what is expected.

Or, put another way... we can check what Hippos are in a Watering Hole for which we know what Hippos are supposed to be there. Then, any Hippos that aren't supposed to be there (like, say, the one in the pink tutu :-D) can be flagged as Dodgy-Looking Hippos.
