I was thinking that maybe after install, a windows update might fix it, but that no response is a show stopper.
If it actually IS freezing there you obviously have other issues with this machine too. If it's not actually frozen/crashed just hit alt-tab to select the prompt if you aren't on it. Then press tab until you have ok selected and press space.

I think you should do some basic hardware tests like either Windows Memory Diagnostic or Memtest86. Also if this machine is old you should visually inspect the capacitors on the motherboard.
Maybe tomorrow I'll wanna settle down, until tomorrow I'll just keep moving on...
