      Installing Sky broadband - how long

      I'm in the process of installing from the 'get set' CD. The message says it will take a few moments - it's been 90+ minutes so far but looks to be almost finished. Is 'moments' a tad optimistic or can I expect problems? Everything does look OK but n sign that McAfee has installed.

      Anyone experience similar, please?

      Personally i wouldn't have bothered with the CD unless you really, REALLY want the McAfee. The router should plug in and go by itself.

      However 90 minutes does seem rather a long time.

      Something is not right.

      Eject the CD and don't bother with it. If you want McAfee you can download it from Sky's website somewhere.

      Help information is in the Sky.com, customer support, broadband area. I was told that downloading it direct from McaAfee works too.

      Thanks all. From the ensuing problem with mcAfee later it seemed all because Norton Rescue Disc was squirrelled away from a couple of years ago.
