It says running for about two seconds, and the screen says busy... then it stops. the computer powered off on it's own, that's when it started. I re-installed and no change, and when i reboot, it says pv.exe has had trouble initializing Any clue? :idea:

Did you uninstall as per the xampp\readme-en.txt file?

You should delete the xampp tree to do a clean uninstall. Then do a fresh install as per the same readme file.

Did you try and start it using xampp\apache_start.bat?
What messages were returned when you run the bat file?

Are you using Skype or IIS (Internet Information Server).

Run xampp\xampp-portcheck.exe to check all ports are Free

You don't need to uninstall Skype just change the port Skype uses:

Skype uses port 80 and 443 by default.
You can alter that behaviour by going to:
Tools\Options\Connection
Untick
Use port 80 and 443 as alternative for incoming connections
You will have to decide a different port to use for incoming connections before Skype lets you save your changes.
