OS: windows xp sp2



When I am trying to install IE& or IE8 on windows xp sp2, it takes long time to install.
Updates and malware removal tool take log time to install.

Why is it so ? When I install Firefox, it does not take this long. But with Firefox, I have problems watching videos.

Thanks

By install, do you mean "open"? Check FF add-ons for help with video problem.
