Installation won't progress past 'Who Are You?' screen

Hey there.

I'm new to Linux, however I'm trying to install an Ubuntu distro from the Live Boot CD. So far everything has gone fine, even doing my own research on certain aspects I'm unsure on.

However, as the subject suggests, I've installed up until the 'Who Are You?' screen. From there, I've put in the username + password, etc. All the details, lots of green ticks

Yet I cannot click the 'Forward' button to proceed. So far I've noticed 'jockey-text' has encountered an error once I get to this stage, so perhaps it's a bad installation? Any help would be appreciated.

Wish I had thought about that before I made the post. I've been able to progress past that point and get Ubuntu installed, using a good .ISO

Thank you.
