I remember I had the same problem.

I believe I created/edited localhost in vhosts.conf
this file is in xampp/apache/conf/extra/httpd-vhost.conf

The first block must look like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName localhost
ServerAdmin admin@localhost
DocumentRoot "c:/program files/xampp/htdocs"

I have a delay problems using localhost so I don't know if it's the right solution but at least localhost worked for me.
