Some applications wont install on Win7 eg; Glary Utilities, Iolo System Mechanic 10.1.2 update,
Malwarebytes Anti-malware plus some others i cant remember. As soon as the installation gets to
Extracting files the progress bar stops and the entire system freezes neccessitating a hard reboot.
Other progams install without a problem
Anyone have any ideas please.

Certainly a new one on me as I have a couple of those installed without problems.

The only thing I can think of is perhaps a conflict with your AV software. Try disconnecting from the 'net, stopping your AV, installing the programmes, start AV and reconnect to web.

Thanks for the suggestion. It was my AV - KIS 2011
