When we were using the ZENworks 4.1 Management Agent on an offline workstation, the Application Explorer / Launcher kept reading the applications over and over (up to 750 times per app). The result was we had to wait more than 10 minutes (!) before the apps showed up.

SOLUTION: We discovered that the TrendMicro Officescan virusscanner was causing the numerous reads on the files. We reconfigured it so it didn't scan the c:\nalcache directory. Result: applications were available offline 10 times faster than before!
