Longest Installer in the History of the World

I’m at my friend‘s house, trying to help him install Maya 7. I figured this would be easy, just open the setup.exe on the disc and install.
Well, I was wrong. Very wrong. There are a few complications here. First of all, my friend has 3 virtual drives, all called basically the same thing as his DVD drive, meaning it took a while to even find the setup.exe file. Then, his firewall. ZoneAlarm or something. It seems like every time Maya tries to install another file, I get a popup that says ‘ZoneAlarm has detected a program doing something you might want to look at’, which stalls the installer and waits for me to click ‘allow’. If this weren’t annoying enough, I’ve waited through at least 5 loading bars, which all say ‘Please wait while I install Maya 7.0’. WHAT IS IT DOING THAT REQUIRES A FREAKING 15 MINUTE LONG INSTALLER?!?!?!?!

Update: Man, this is a sight for sore eyes:

Update: While I’m on the topic of this dude’s computer, may I mention that apart from a few awesome programs like 3ds and maya (whose legality are questionable), his computer sucks. It didn’t come with MSPaint, Calculator, or Sound Recorder. It refuses to install service pack 2 (or any updates, for that matter…). He’s looking to upgrade it, but I’m thinking that he should back up the files he needs to a DVD and scrap it.
