Installing software takes way too long Tags: Software Windows 7 Last response: July 6, 2012 9:28 PM in Windows 7 Share sashu545 July 6, 2012 8:37:05 PM Anytime when I install something, the install hangs on 1% for about 15-20 minutes and then installs in 2 minutes. How do I stop it from hanging on the install?

Installing and uninstalling Steam. Hard drive is half full. 2nd Hard Drive is pretty much empty. | Report abuse Proximon July 6, 2012 9:28:19 PM So turn off the AV and see if it still happens. "Low overhead" means nothing if it's waiting for an overworked server somewhere to give the OK for your install. Also, your machine doesn't need to save resources, you have plenty to go around. I suggest you try MS Security Essentials or AVG Free for a bit if you discover Panda is the problem. In fact, even if that is not the issue you need to consider a "second opinion" on the state of malware on your PC. I believe steam installs need a specific port opened to behave properly. This could be a router issue as well. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows 7>Installing software takes way too long> Related ressources: ForumTakes a long time to show files icons in Windows Explorer ForumTakes too long Forumit takes a long time to load explorer ForumFile Name Too Long ForumWelcome screen takes so long ForumSGI takes Itanium & Linux to 1024- way ForumGames taking too long to install ForumWin XP boots OK but the blue screen takes a long time about "2 min" be ForumComputer taking too long to boot before loading windows ForumI7 2700 running way too hot ForumOS taking too long to install Forum[Solved] Product key for windows 7 professional 32 bit free ForumProblem Installing Windows 7 ForumProblem Installing "Silverlight" ForumLong Splash Screen More resources Read discussions in other Windows 7 categories Configuration Customization Drivers Security Laptops !
