Never seen that error message before. Lets try reinstalling Windows Installer:

1/ Click the Start button

2/ From the Start menu click Run

3/ In the Run dialog box type: cmd and press Return

4/ The Command Prompt window will now appear

5/ In the Command Prompt window type the following pressing Return after each entry:

attrib -r -s -h

c:\windows\system32\dllcache

cd c:\windows\system32\

ren msi.dll msi.old

ren msiexec.exe msiexec.old

ren msihnd.dll msihnd.old

exit

6/ After Exiting from the Command Window Reboot your PC

7/ The Windows Installer should now automatically be reinstalled.
