I tried to find msiexec.exe in Autoruns output - nothing.

Try programs like process hacker or process explorer to check out who is a parent process for this. Also check task scheduler.

If that fails, I'm out of simple solutions, and I don't know complex ones.

I task scheduler i dont see direct execution of this process, but you be run indirectly.. i have there usually things:
Nvidia Geforce experience and drivers
Google updater
Avira antivirus things

When i try process explorer:

Its ok? Should this process be autostarted with /v parameter?

Here is registry key, uploaded.

It can be difficult to track msiexec.exe by process name due to the way it operates. It usually will create a process, exit and re-open a new process.

For trying to figure out what runs it, you may want to look into the CBS.log. Of course there is always the Windows Performance Toolkit, part of the ADK, which has bootlogging tools.

Windows installer clean up utility  it can damage your Computer if u are not careful.  Or it can work perfectly fine with no issue.

Destro, that doesn't seem entirely relevant.

Ruthan, take a look at this, it is for Windows 7 but perhaps it still works for Windows 10. You may even get to look into the temp folder to see if any logs are already present with the timestamp of your boot time. Otherwise, try setting the registry key and see if it makes any "better" logs appear.

There was nothing really of note in the CBS.log. In the most recent reboot, nothing much but in the one prior Windows Update was doing something.

It seems to be fixed, i used MS Utilital fixer and ordered installed programs from oldest and tried if uninstall can be executed, if dont i uninstalled program.. There was probably something broken from old Win7 install, which was upgraded to Win10.

I had a feeling that thing would work.  Becasue I had that same problem before.  ANd I used those uninstallers and they worked.
