Best to give xampp ports 80 & 443 and configure skype to use different ports.

OK i changed skype ports and reset back to 80 and 443 and now apache is running.

Does mySql have to have the same port no i.e. 80 in config it shows as
# The following options will be passed to all MySQL clients
[client]
# password = your_password
port = 3306
socket = "C:/xampp/mysql/mysql.sock"


# Here follows entries for some specific programs

# The MySQL server
[mysqld]
port= 3306
socket = "C:/xampp/mysql/mysql.sock"
basedir = "C:/xampp/mysql"
tmpdir = "C:/xampp/tmp"
datadir = "C:/xampp/mysql/data"
pid_file = "mysql.pid"
# enable-named-pipe
key_buffer = 16M
max_allowed_packet = 1M
sort_buffer_size = 512K
net_buffer_length = 8K
read_buffer_size = 256K
read_rnd_buffer_size = 512K
myisam_sort_buffer_size = 8M
log_error = "mysql_error.log"

Check the Windows Logs (Application) in the Event Viewer in administrative tools, it may give you a clue what the problem is and why the service will not start.
Due to the fact it does listen on a socket the firewall could be blocking it, make sure there's an exception in windows firewall for it. Do not forward a port through your router for it however.
