    I have reformatted my PC recently. And have downloaded a few new GC isos to try and what not. But i dont know whether its something I have only just noticed but unzipping a file which is about a gig in size, is taking my PC about 6 minutes. Now im sure it wasnt this slow before. Anyone know why?, or does this sound about right??

    MY PC specs are Athlon 64 3ghz, 512 ram, windows XP, 120GIG Sata Drive

    It could be the program you are using or something is running at the same time that is interfering with it.

    It depends on how hard the file is compressed...
    if it's heavily compressed it can take minutes yeah.

    Things like that happen all the time for me
