XP won't let me remove Apple programs in Safe Mode

My computer hasn't been starting first time for ages, but now it won't start at all, at least in normal mode. (It's only a few months old).
I started it in safe mode and went through all my programs and they all opened fine. I deleted all non-Microsoft stuff, but when I go into control panel and try to remove Quicktime, iTunes and the Apple updating software, it says that Microsoft installer is corrupt and the removal can't go ahead.
But everything else removes fine.
I scanned with Sophos and there seems to be no malware, trojans or viruses. I don't have a Windows CD to fix it. What can I do????
Thanks in advance

Welcome to GeeksToGo :) .

It seems like you may have unwillingly removed something of value from your system.

Click This Link for instructions on how to repair the Windows Installer Package and see if it then allows you to remove the programs.
