Personally, when possible, the installer I prefer is the "unzip it 
anywhere you want and it works" installer. Users then know that the 
installer isn't going to install a gazillion DLL that can potentially 
arm their system. (especially if the users are programmers)

For a free one, you could look at NSIS. I have no experience with it but 
it looks really nice.

NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System) is a professional open source 
system to create Windows installers. It is designed to be as small and 
flexible as possible and is therefore very suitable for internet
