I have a system folder missing

Trying to do an update and am told I have an error that windows/installer/2803558.msi is missing. I don't even have windows/installer folder. What might be going on other than the grinch stole it.


More info:
It is error 1305.
I did a search for the file and it is in the installer folder. While there I took ownership of the file and in Properties.....security I gave user "everyone" full privilege. Still couldn't install the update, got the same error 1305. Will keep investigating.

You might have damaged or corrupt system files. Try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 time and reboot the computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
