    This took a looooong time to install on my laptop. I don't know exactly
    how long but it was at least 20 minutes after it had downloaded it that
    I was asked to reboot.

    Cheers,

    Cliff

    MS Windows Vista [insert marketing term here]?

    It wasn't Vista.

    That's odd Cliff, I have a few lappies (in use) here ranging from a 1.3GHz
    Celeron to a 2.1GHz C2D all using XP and the slowest took under a minute. Is
    your HDD alright? Have you a monitoring app installed?

    I only mentioned it as a warning that it *might* take a while. It's good
    to hear that others didn't have the same problem.
