    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 W@W 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.

    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+
