You can do the Advanced install and choose what you want to include.
You could also just delete the DLLs in question afterwards. I suspect
they are the gdal drivers for Mrsid and ECW formats.

I think what you found is a logic bug, it should skip things you don't
agree to, not abort the install. Did it really abort if you didn't agree?
