[PROBLEM] why does my windows installer program take a long time to complete actions??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all,


I have a question for you, im running windows 7 64bit and when ever im installing or uninstalling or add/remove a program the action itself takes approx 10-15 min to get started, once i go threw this pause the actual installation or uninstall takes the normal amount of time. it seems like it gets hung up in the beginning "thinking" phase of the action. i hope i explained this right and someone could give me some insight. ive run my antivirus and spy ware programs so its nothing like that.


Thanks and if you need clarification on anything let me know

First: What are the specs of your machine? CPU ram, hard drive. All that stuff.

Second. If it is taking THAT long to actually uninstall something I would first to a hardware test: ie: hard drive test.

Third. If there is nothing wrong with the system hardware wise you may have a virus causing it to run slow or spyware, depending on your system specs too.
