itunes.msi not found when tryinh to unistall Itune

when trying to update or unistall Itunes on windows, it complains about a missing Itunes.msi file. If you Browse for this file however, you’ll find it in the location that it’s supposed to be (C:\Program Files\Apple Software Update\Packages).
I tried a few things to fix this, including downloading the latest iTunes from Apple’s website. After about 30 minutes of digging, I discovered that there’s a simple fix.
1) Download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility
2) Install the program (MS Office not required!)
3) Run the program from Start->All Programs->Windows Install Cleanup Utility
or run msicuu2.exe
4) Click on iTunes, and then click the “Remove” button -( if again same error comes just ingnor & go next step )
5 ) Run the iTunes installer
All in all the process took about 2 minutes, and once again download and listen favorite podcasts
