Slow installs!!!

#1
Ok, so i'm having the problem of some programs taking forever to install.

I.e I started the install of power dvd, it took like 7min to pop up the window to say Next.\

I installed the 1.2patch of CoD [email protected] and it took a while, and used 500MB of ram.

Thats crazy? or am i just being stupid?


Windows 7 x32, Build 7100
x3800 X2 @ 2.4GHz (not the problem)
2gigs 667MHz ram (dual channel)
Raid 0 320gig HD's (160+160) and
Fresh install of OS

Coming from XP 32bit

Have you run a spyware scan? Check msconfig to see if your ram is depleted by too many programs running. Use taskmanager to see if a process is claiming all of your CPU time.

Checked, CPU sitting at 8% ave.

No other stuff installed (only nforce, GeForce, Creative sound drivers)

I've had the same problems on 32-bit and 64-bit. I'm not sure why my installations are going so slowly. It's definitely not my computer.

Specifications

- AMD Phenom X4 2.6Ghz
- 4GB DDR2 RAM
- NVIDIA 9800GTX+

If thats the case then why don't i see over threads about this?

Maybe its just some process doing stuff it shouldn't, will have to do more scratching
