Setup Squeezer is a commercial tool from InstallAware Software Corporation
Description from the company:
Setup Squeezer is an application to recompress Windows Installer (MSI) and InstallShield (EXE) setups. With LZMA compression technology, and BCJ2 compression pre-processing, Setup Squeezer is able to make already-compressed setups smaller by an additional 15% to 50%. Setup Squeezer improves on existing setup-compression tools by offering a very simple wizard interface that helps you intelligently unpack and repackage existing setups, with runtime support for all versions of Windows from Windows 95 to Windows Vista, using an extraction process that the user can abort, while running with as little as 32MB of physical memory. Previously compressed packages and nested setups are recursively scanned, opened, and automatically recompressed. Setup Squeezer is available in two versions: Setup Squeezer for Windows Installer and Setup Squeezer for InstallShield.
Emissary is a shareware tool available from Mimar Sinan International
Emissary creates self extracting executables with a high compression rate (CAB-LZX compression). It supports file splitting, authenticode signing, custom messages and license agreement and localization. It has a wizard style user interface, a command line interface and adds itself to the right click menu so that you can conveniently package (and optionally e-mail) a file from Windows Explorer.

WinZip and WinZip SelfExtractor are commercial products by WinZip Computing, Inc.
There are several ZIP utilities that can create self extracting executables for windows. In my opinion, WinZip is the best. It supports 16 and 32 bit windows, code signing and password protection. WinZip 7.0 can even create self-extractors that span multiple diskettes.
