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.
