Am recently having problems installing from CD. eg game 'No One Lives Forever2'. Incredibly slow installation - half an hour to an hour and then usually machine crashes or just freezes, I am dure all relevany drivers are latest. Have defragged drive and removed unwanted files. 30 Gig drive and loads of room. Can anyone help? Thanks

Hi Elwell. This sounds very much like a faulty disk. The only times I've had this sort of problem with a cd is when I've made a cd to cd copy of a slide show I created, and then for some reason the cd that should have taken minutes to load took ages.

try copying the cd to disc, then run Setup from the copy in safe mode
