I'm seeing this as well.  For me the unclickable window seems to be an undrawed
frame (including undrawed title/min/max/close controls), not just a perfectly
formed window that merely doesn't take clicking events.

I _think_ it appears when an app using either Java or the Java plugin is
running, and we're supposed to see the messagebox asking us to close those apps
before the install can occur.  Except it fails miserably for reasons unknown.
Probably something to do with Win7's security context being subtly different
from the user's, subtle enough that the installer's drawing API is sending the
window in the wrong place.  Or something.
