Guest Install seemed to go reasonably smoothly & didn't take an unreasonable amount of time, though on the 1st try, the installation hung after all the files were downloaded. Kingsoft Antivirus found a file it said was suspicious: it had something that malware always used to launch itself with. Sorry for the lame explanation, I'm feeling really sleepy & under-caffeinated.
