what version of matlab are you trying to install. Version before 2009a seem to have a known issue with Java in windows 7.

If you are installing a version earlier than 2009a then follow these steps:
1. change your theme to basic (without aero).
2. Install the latest java
3. rename the folder
program files->matlab-> YOUR VERSION OF MATLAB->sys->java->
jre->win32->jre1.5.0.7 to original_jre1.5.0.7
4. go to program files->java copy jre6 and paste in the matlab folder in win32. rename this folder to jre1.5.0.7

Let me know if this works
