Does anyone know how ZENworks checks associations to packages. We have hundreds of applications on the school system, and a large number of them are unused, but we still have them in the system in case they are needed again in the future (like training applications for example).

It takes quite a while for our users to log in and get all of the NAL shortcuts, and my thoughts are that ZEN checks all applications to see if they are associated to the user or workstation, but I wanted to know to see if it is worth culling all of these unused apps, or if our speed problems would be arising from some other issue.
