Windows 7 Lag (Only during installation of programs)

Hi folks,

I have a very specific problem with Windows 7 build 7100 ... when I try to install programs I get a severe lag.

For instance, on microsoft office 2007, Photoshop CS4 and some other programs (btw, this does include game updates also for some beta's I'm in) the system slows down to the point that it feels like it is frozen.

I would like to state though that the system is NOT frozen, it's just thinking hard about something because if I wait the program will successfully install. Just to give you an idea of what I'm talking about though ... Installing office 2007 I had to wait for a total of 30 minutes for it to install and on PS CS4 I had to wait almost 3 1/2 HOURS.

I was wondering if anyone else has run into that problem and if so how I could fix it.
