Accubid Systems - Performance

Does have any experience with Accubid Systems "Accubid" or "Change Order" software in regards to performance tuning?

Looking to do some troubleshooting tomorrow and looking for ideas.

We are currently running it on Terminal Server 2008

IE Enhanced Security - Kills SQL

Here is a little tip that would have been good to know before hand.

One of our admins turned off the "Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration" and it killed the SQL service. It just so happens that SQL service was hosting our Accounting system, ouch.

But why oh why does turning off IEESM kill the DTC service which in turned killed the SQL server service?

Any ideas?

I can't wait for this day to be over.
