NSIS is quite common. (But +1 for InnoSetup, too.)

I use Inno Setup for all my installers. It's free and fairly extensible. I also recommend ISTool as a better IDE for InnoSetup.

I don't have much experience with it, but I've heard Wix is good.

It's painful (if you're not used to XML design) but worth the pain. :-) –  Mehrdad May 21 '11 at 8:46
Worth noting that 1) WiX is an official tool by Microsoft, 2) it outputs MSI packages for Windows Installer, rather than standalone EXE installer programs. –  grawity May 21 '11 at 10:59
