Programme installation problems W7

Yesterday joy, new laptop arrives, W7 Home premium.
Today, complete frustration as loads of apparently compatible programmes fail to install. I could give a list but one example will do as it has happened with 8 programmes now.
I download the exe file to install ELibrary for my Sony EReader, the correct version for W7 64bit, it starts to install then the wizard screen vanishes with msiexec still running in the processes list. Sometimes i get a message saying the installation was interrupted to please try later!!!
Do I have a bug or am I totally incompetent?
