My steam takes FOREVER to install games?


Beta member
Hi guys,

My steam installation time is really long for some reason, the actual download of the game isn't too bad (I only get around 38MB on wired connection so not great but it's all I can get in my area at the minute). For a 596MB download it's taking around 10 minutes (initially said over one year so I had to restart...). If I download stuff on my Xbox Series X it takes literally no time at all, especially at that size. I've put my PC specs below, don't know if it is anything to do with that? Would really appreciate your guys help :)

Also, see a current update on my steam attached. Why is it taking so long?

According to the first pic I will assume that the download is already done, and the rest of that bar is the decompression taking place after the download is done. Either it's decompressing really slowly due to single thread CPU usage, or the there is a problem with the drive it's decompressing on. Other than that not much I can say about it as I don't know anything about the game itself.
