Enumerate Modules in a Process the most efficient way

Hi,
In my application I need to retrieve a list of modules that are loaded in a process. The problem is that some of my users have outdated CPUs and will experience a short freezing episode when I enumerate the modules with this code:

       var mProcess = Process.GetProcessById(Scans.ProcId);
                foreach (ProcessModule a in mProcess.Modules)
                {
                    if (!a.FileName.Contains("\\\\."))
                    {
                            //stuff
                    }
                }

Is there another way to do this? Preferably with WMI, but WMI does not have a field for Process Modules, that I know of

Thanks for the time!

Why did you post that thread? I needed to know how to get the process path there, now I need a better way for the modules of the process

sorry if I misunderstood

you can always use threadpool to process your code asynchronously, this will not freeze your application

            ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(c =>
                                             {
                                                 var process = Process.GetProcessById(123);

                                                 foreach (ProcessModule module in process.Modules)
                                                 {
                                                   //do your magic here....
                                                 }
                                             });

Actually the issue is not my application freezing, but the application I'm enumerating is freezing

That will help I think, though. How can I wait for the QueueUserWorkItem to complete?

Final code:

                var resetEvent = new ManualResetEvent(false);
                ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(c =>
                                                 {

                                                     var mProcess = Process.GetProcessById(Scans.MOHAAProcessId);
                                                     var rModules = mProcess.Modules;
                                                     foreach (ProcessModule a in rModules)
                                                     {
                                                         if (!a.FileName.Contains("\\\\."))
                                                         {
                                                           //stuffs
                                                         }
                                                     }
                                                     resetEvent.Set();
                                                 }
                    );
                resetEvent.WaitOne();
