Largely sized game installers won’t even open up

Installation
When I try to run an installer for a game larger than 2 gig, the installer doesn't even open up. If the game is 500-1000mb then it will open after 5 minutes of waiting. How can I make the installer run? The installer will run, but it will just be sitting under "Processes" in task manager, only using 116kb of Memory. Also, after I run the program it will slow down my computer by a massive amount. This happens for every game thats size is over a gig.


Software/Hardware used:
Windows 7, I am trying to run the installer for "Chaos Heroes Online"/

    What are your system specs? Processor, RAM, operating system is this a 32-bit or 64-bit system? Games that large may require more power than you have.

    All I'm trying to do is install the game. So far I've just downloaded the data and it isn't even installed onto my computer yet.

    Here's my system specs http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=8S04P3wk

    Sounds strange. When you click on the download link does it download an .EXE you need to run or just launch the installer automatically. Is it possible that your firewall or anti-virus may be stopping the process thinking it's malicious software? The only other thin I can think of is the installer may be corrupt. Is this game download available from another site? I can't check it out here at work but can try when I get home.

    So I download installer. It opens up a download manager and downloads the data file for the game. So I run the file and it will open up in task manager, but no window will open up + it will lag the heck out of my computer. This has happened before, but only with games where the .exe file is especially large. And when it happened before, it took a long time to open (about 5-10 minutes) and lagged my computer so bad while the program was trying to open. The games I remember having the problem were MapleStory, S4 League, and LaTale, all of which had installers around 1 gig in size. I'm going to try deleting the files and re downloading the game in a couple days. I'm really busy at the moment.
