I need someone to point me in the direction to solve the problem below.

I have an app I wrote in VB6 that uses the winapi to see text in another
application and send keystrokes to it.

I've been using this app happily for several years without modifications to
the winapi calls since I first wrote it.

This past week I installed a new software product required by my employer.
Now the time my program takes to do winapi calls has increased from
milliseconds to 2 or 3 seconds (the part that ENUMs windows and threads).  2
weeks ago my program performed its task in 1 hour.  Now it takes almost 6

Other than getting a different computer, any ideas?
