Topic Subject: Slowest install ever???
posted 11-15-01 04:44 PM EDT (US)   

I bought the game and am installing it. It has taken like 90 minutes to get to 42%.

WTF is going on?? No other apps are running, I have a 1ghz P3 with 512MB of Ram!!

no clue there. It only took me a few mins to install the game. I got P3 1k ghz 256 megs of RAM. Only thing I could sugest is to try restarting. Maybe that'll help.

What os if it's Me or XP it runs some stuff in the back ground that CTL ALT DEL doesnt show which store images of your disk before and after every major change like installing a game. They can Really slow down install. Also how much hard drive space have u got free as if you don't have much it will again install slowly. It helps to have twice the amount of free space the game needs to run.

If U left it on for a really long time b4 installing, it might be a RAM prob. to fix, restart and try again.

TSL - Wrong, that requires a complete shut down.

A reboot leaves $h!t in the RAM.

Well, it wouldn't accept "cr@p"...

as for clearing up RAM space. I have been using "CleanMyMemory" program I downloaded from ZDNet. I have been very satisfied with the results. If I am correct, using this simple program is a whole lot easier that rebooting. Just a thought

I use FreeMem Standard.

It's nice.
