    msiexec.exe is a windows component, I think its used when your installing programs.
    I used to have that same error on my old pc, it turned out to be a virus.
    you could always try reinstalling the component

    Are you able to reach the desktop after seeing the error?

    Try registering Windows Installer.

    Click Start>Run
    Type
    msiexec /unreg
    Enter.

    Start>Run
    Type
    msiexec /regserver
    Enter.

    Let us know if that helps.
