    When installing or uninstalling just about any program in WinVista it takes
    an unusually long amount of time to do so. Can anyone tell me what may be
    causing this?

  2. What may seem unusually long for some may be different for another.
    Try rebooting before installing-uninstalling.
    If the times are shorter, something you had running is slowing it
    If there is no change, either that is the way it is or something that
    automatically starts may be slowing it down.

    Unless you can determine there is a specific problem, your computer
    may be OK and you are better off not trying to fix what is not broke.

    How new/old is your Vista PC? When new, some things like disk indexing can
    suck up resources, making other tasks run slower. And, as another person
    responded... what other tasks are running? You -might- (not definitely) have
    some other things running that are hogging system resources. (Like what? SAV
    comes to mind...)
