Whenever a large app is downloaded and run from a temporary folder or a saved file it takes up to half an hour before it starts. Running vista. Any thoughts.

Are you saving the file to your computer before you run it (as in clicking "Save" or "Save to disk" or similar when your browser asks you), or are you running it from the temp folder without actually saving the installer?

The .exe file isn't inside a ZIP or RAR folder is it?

tried cleaning out your temp folder? might be a lot of clutter also if you save the exe does it do that? because if not that limits the things it could be

That sounds like part of Vista's Internet Explorer "Protected Mode" security feature. It may open faster, if you move it out of the Temp folder.

If you are not saving downloaded file in your system it mean you need to increase the size of your virtual memory.

Not running IE and protected mode is off anyway, I use Firefox, I tried upping my virtual memory, still same thing. I usually use save as and for example I want to run AirRivals (formerly known as flysis, formerly known as space cowboy) it will take 30 minutes before the allow or not allow window (consent) comes up. Other than that everything runs smooth, games etc. Could there be a bug in the consent process.

It is possible. There may also be a bug in Firefox, that doesn't work well with the Vista Consent feature.

I've had this problem before aswell and I'm running on XP. What I did was restart my computer and then download again.
