That's normal in my opinion. Spinning platters are slow at accessing multiple reads and writes concurrently. This is where SSD's greatest advantage is truly demonstrated. It happens to my laptop too like when I am decompressing very large .rar, .iso .arc etc. files, My whole system slows down to a crawl. I mean opening a new tab in a browser takes more than 3 seconds instead of being instantaneos. The reason you feel that the CPU is not working well is because the hard disk does not have enough data to feed the CPU. In other words. the hard drive is bottlenecking your CPU and RAM.

Does your computer only slows down while installing? Does it also slows when are opening an application or web browsing while an installation is in progress?

If your disk is always at 100 % highest active time, it's maybe windows doing indexing or superfetch or maybe a scheduled background task is running, but those disk activities should not slow down your computer much. My computer only slows down when installing heavy applications or extracting lots of compressed files.

Based on your screenshots there is definitely something within the "System" process that is hogging your disk activity. Can you post a screenshot of the "Disk" tab in your Resource Monitor showing the processes that are listed on "Process with Disk Activity" and "Disk Activity" drop down menu?

Sorry to invade on the thread, but have you performed an anti-virus scan, a malware program or file may be hogging your system's resources?

Windows 7 random CPU usage and high physical memory usage!!!
Ok, I am literally KILLING myself over this! I installed Windows 7 64Bit over XP around a month ago and it was so good that I recommended it to my brother who was previously on XP too. We got him a copy of the 32bit version as he has only 2gb of memory, and he installed it on his machine....
