I've installed QGis on my windows XP machine, however when trying to startup, I get the following error message:
Entrypoint not found procedure TIFFMErgeFieldInfo for DLL libtiff.dll
Any idea how to fix this? I've tried reinstalling several times, even using CCleaner to fix the registry etc..

Possibly... Any idea how I can fix this?
This sounds to me like a conflict of several versions of libtiff.dll. You can try to resolve this by the following:
check if there is a libtiff.dll in your windows/system32 folder
if there is one rename it to libtiff.dll.bak
copy the libtiff.dll from the qgis install dir to windows/system32
this possibly affects other programs which need the (older/different) version of libtiff.dll, in this case you have to reverse your actions.
I heared, this is called the windows dll hell.
