The Tor ‘Expert Bundle’ is currently a .exe file which installs Tor (badly; see #3757). A .zip file would be easier to create, easier to use in some important ways, and at least as easy for anyone who should be using it to install.

Sounds good to me. (Easy for me to say, I know :)

This is bad idea. I think the real answer is to switch to MSI installer or update the expert bundle installer for Windows 7. The nullsoft installer we use was designed for Windows 95 and has been updated over the years to work with newer versions of windows. It's clear it hasn't done so.
