MD5 sum check takes hours

I'm new to R, just getting my feet wet after running into the limits of excel. To get started I want to install some packages. The bigger the package (MB) the longer it takes for the MD5 sum check. The 'BH' package is 18.1 MB and it has been several hours since I started the install. The previous package was 4.3 MB and took about 2 hours. That doesn't seem normal behavior. Any idea what causes this or how to speed things up?

I'm working on the 64-bit version, also using Windows 10, 64 bit.
