Slow x64 application installation

RichardHills asked
Last Modified: 2015-07-29
I have recently reinstalled Windows7 x64 on a Lenovo T440p laptop.
Can install x32 applications without issue.  However, installing x64 applications is painfully slow.
Have tried:
  Running installer as administrator
  Disabling Norton Antivirus (Auto protection and firewall)

Other possible related issues:
  Novastor Backup gets stuck 'Creating  Open File shadow copies'
