Problems using XAMPP Control Panel

I've installed XAMPP loads of times on various Windows flavors and Linux distros. Always managed a succesfull install.

But I very often come across one problem: can't stop services (mainly Apache and MySQL) from the XAMPP Control Panel: instead I get 'Busy, Error: -1'.

This happens really a lot; anyone know why it might be?

One other thing: the XAMPP control panel includes a Settings button; when you click it takes you to 'Service Settings' which includes a check box for 'Enable the XAMPP Service'. If I check it, it's unchecked the next time I look.

What is the XAMPP Service? Anything to do with my question above?
