Windows Installer freezes and then resumes after 10-20 minutes?

By wise09 ·
Getting so sick of this problem. Since my fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (SP1) - whenever I install software, the windows installer will hang or not respond for long periods - then it comes back to life, installs a bit more, then freezes again - sometimes it can take up to 10-20 minutes to install a normal program! Can anyone shed any light on this?
Everything except install setups is working fine.

Open the Device Manager

And see what the CPU, RAM and so on is doing.

That would be the right starting point for this. Look at the CPU Usage, RAM Usage and for any Non-responding Programs.

How much memory do you have in your system?

Remember that for 64 bit operating systems, more memory the better.
Install as much memory as your motherboard can take. This will make your Install of programs and updates run smoother and makes it less to crashing or freezing.
