You should see this line in it. If you don't see it, make sure to add it.
I now understand these are added by my spyware program to redirect calls from my m/c to "bad" sites back to 127.0.0.1?

to the end of your xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf file if it is not there already, save it and then restart Apache.
Always make a backup of your conf files before editing in case you make a typo.
Also check your apache log files as there may be a clue there.
xampp\apache\logs\error.logI now understand these are added by my spyware program to redirect calls from my m/c to "bad" sites back to 127.0.0.1?
This redirect to 127.0.0.1 I am not sure about as localhost is 127.0.0.1 and you are having issues with localhost.
Maybe try and cut those out of the hosts file and try loading localhost again.
You can always paste them back in again if it makes no difference.
BTW the 127.0.0.1 localhost line in the hosts file may be better if it was the first line.

Norton Anti-Virus and NOD32 Anti Virus have been known to cause issues if you are using either, temporary disable.
Also don't know if this old trick might work, it might be worth a try.
Add this to your last httpd.conf file edit so it looks like this:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.3/mod/co ... lesendfile
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.3/mod/co ... enablemmap
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.3/mod/mp ... leacceptex
When you uninstall XAMPP did you follow the instructions at Step 5 in the xampp\readme_en.txt file?
Before reinstalling XAMPP make sure that no apache services are still running by checking the Windows Task Manager - right click on the task bar and select Task Manager from the context menu then click on the Processes tab and look for any XAMPP services running.
