Who is windows update?

Question

When trying to install several programs of a cd, the installshield freezes up and the next, back and cancel buttons don not respond. The only way to get out is by clicking on x.

The information seem to have slipped to the bottom right hand side of the installshield window.

What can I do to fix this and get my programs to install?
