Which installer did you use? Please check if you have a libtiff.dll in your %WINDIR%\system32. Does renaming it help?

Windows Standalone Installer

(Recommended for new users) The standalone windows installer is also based on the OSGeo4W packages and includes GRASS. ECW & MrSID support is not included.

Download QGIS 1.5.0

Hello, i had the same problem on my win vista system. Renaming the libtiff.dll in the "system32" folder (p.e. in libtiff_before_qgis_1_5_install.dll) solved the problem and qgis starts now proberly.
