Windows installer systems

Does anyone have any recommendations for Windows installer systems (InstallShield, etc.)? I'm specifically interested in multiple component rollout and autoupdate functions.

If I understand your question correctly, Symantec Ghost is the best that I've come across. You can install an entire OS or just updates to it. If you're doing updates, you scan the machine, and then make the installs, and then scan again, and Ghost will note the changes, and then bundle it all together in one file.

i think he means for installing programs on windows, not windows itself.

I've only used NSIS myself, and found it pretty nifty, but I don't know if it has the features you need.

Inno setup is pretty good, although I don't think it has an autoupdate feature. (These are pretty simple to write though)
