downloading games fast but installing slow

Specs: Windows 7, 8 Gig
I'm using Windows 7, HP Envy 17 Notebook 8 GB RAM, 64 bit operating sys, Intell i7-2630 QM @ 2.00 GHZ 2.00 Gz

I am trying to install the game Everquest and have already downloaded and installed Wow and other games for testing. However, I've come across the problem of extremely slow installation of Everquest and a couple of other games. Since Wow downloaded and installed quickly as some others did, I'm unsure of why the problem of the slow installation of Everquest. Any suggestions? Thanks

Greyfeathers, just a guess, since the DL itself is fast, that says the net, etc. is OK and the slowness is you. An overactive firewall can do that. Just for grins (temporarily only, very dangerous if left), scan the new DL to be sure it's clean, then disable the firewall and try again. See if that helps.
Another thought that comes to mind is a bloated menu, maybe your machine is trying to do too many things in the background? RIGHTCLICK on your taskbar in a blank spot and start the taskmaster. Click on the 'processes' tab and it'll display current machine activity so you can see what's using machine cycles.
