A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file C: WINDOWS\Installer\iTunes.msi

I am not able to get to iTunes or look at any videos on my Corel Program because of a Quick Time error. It keeps telling me that I need to upgrade my Quick Time and when I tried it wouldn't let me so then I tried to remove it and couldn't because of an error and then I came here to get the Windows clean up utility and that finally removed the program out of my Control Panel and I thought that would fix it but it didn't and now it's giving me this current message. What do I do now?

OK!
This problem occurs in all applications in all environments such as Windows XP, Amiga, and Windows 7. I have only my current computer with Windows 7 64bit to relate to the problem. After following all the suggestions to cure the problem with no success, I read the error message which was indicating the MSI was being read from C:\Windows\Installer. There is no such MSI placed in that directory. SO to solve the problem you must place whatever Apple msi installation giving the error message in the C:\Windows\Installer directory. Just drop it directly in the directory. Do not use any sub directory. If your don't have a copy of the MSI, you can extract it from the EXE installation file with a program like WinRar. My problem was with iTunes so the install dump looked like this C:\Windows\Installer\iTunes64.msi. Run the MSI or the original download from Apple. This worked for me as expected so you give it a try.

The solution offered by PaulHenderson worked.  Extract the "itunes64.msi" file from the "itunes64setup.exe" file.  Copy and paste the "itunes64.msi" file into c:\windows\installer folder (which is hidden on Win 7, but visible if typed into the address bar).  Well done and thanks Paul!
