Unable to load 32 bit client on 64 bit windows 7 Enterprise

I got a new PC at work and tried doing my oracle installs but I keep having failures on the 32 bit Oracle client install. What happens is that the install proccedes without issue until the copy files step at which it freezes at 8% progress. When I look in the oracle_home folder I find an inventory directory and nothing more. When I go to the program files or program files(x86) directory I find that the oracle directory has not been created. When I try the install with the 64 bit version I have no issues. Unfortunatelly there are a number of products that still require the 32 bit client software, such as TOAD. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could possibly be causing this?
