How do I install games and software?

For some reason games and other software won't install, after the next procedure steps, the installation goes into limbo, even though in task manager it is stated as responsive.

Have you tried this, Place the CD/DVD in the drive and select the open option The highligh the Install option, right click and select run as adminstrater

I tried the Windows Defender (firewall) disable, and the 'run as administrator' but it had no effect on the installation speed.

When I installed Crysis 2, the installation process goes into limbo, then after an hour or more it kicks in, and begins to install, its as if something is effecting the DVD RW reading speed,

PS: I have installed the latest firmware, for the DVD RW!
