    If you're installing an illegal copy or forged product, Microsoft won't allow you and will lockdown your computer.

    You could try to boot from the Vista Installation CD and reformat your hard drive into Vista.

    I don't under what you're trying to interpret between logging into a Vista account and signing on tor Windows.

    If a software is preventing you to login/sign-in, then you could try disabling the software by
    Start > Run > msconfig

    Select the tab where the Startup programs are located (the second to last tab) and disable the software you believe to be causing your computer to shut off after logging in. Disabling all of the software won't damage your computer.
