Well a machine that has not been switched on for two years could probably benefit by having a new motherboard battery fitted for one thing
To all intents and purposes the missing .dll appears to be an ITunes aspect but I wouldn't have thought that that would cause a shut down.
Can you start in Safe Mode by continuously tapping F8 immediately on boot up?

Download Official Windows Vista RTM with SP1 Setup Files (32-bit and 64-bit).
Only Windows Vista Ultimate with SP1 (X64 or X86) download is available, but if, during the install, you do not enter the product key
when initially prompted for it (which you must have to use the download), then you will be prompted to select the version of Vista you
want to install.
Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Business
Windows Vista Ultimate
Downloaded the Vista X64 or X86 files.
Double clicked on X14-63453.exe or X14-63452.exe. It extractes all the files into a Vista sub-folder.
Downloaded Windows Bootable Image Creator zip then extract the files to a folder:
Open the folder and run WBICreator.exe
Select OS Type: Windows Vista
CD/DVD Label: VistaX64 or VistaX86
Setup Location: The Vista folder created when you double clicked on X14-63453.exe or X14-63452.exe.
Output Path: Somewhere with enough free space to hold the .iso file that will be created (X64 = 3,837,112KB, X86 = 3,013,816KB).
When done a VistaX64.iso or VistaX86.iso file will be created in the Output Path you chose.
You can use the .iso as input to a burner program like ImgBurn to create a Vista Install DVD, or you can use it as Input to
Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3 to create a Vista install flash drive.
I created a X86 flash drive and used it to install a clean copy of Vista Home Basic on my HP DV2200 Laptop. Worked great using the key on the COA sticker of the laptop.
Remember to use the X64 or X86 version of Vista you currently have.

If you do not have a Windows 7 installation DVD, you can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here:
Windows 7 Direct Download Links
Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.
I recommend using ImgBurn at 4X speed (or the slowest available) to create the DVD from the downloaded .iso file.
You can do this on any computer capable of burning a DVD.
YOU MUST HAVE A VALID KEY TO INSTALL THIS .ISO. The one on the COA sticker on your computer will work.
You can also create a bootable USB Flash drive (4GB or larger) to install Windows 7 from.
- Download and run Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3
- Select Windows 7 from the first drop down list, all the way to the bottom
- Select the downloaded Windows 7 iso file
- Select your USB flash drive
- Click Create
This will fit on a 6GB flash drive or can be burned to a DVD.
