Other than that no error messages and not much else to go on for a solution.
What error message is returned when you try and start using the .\xampp\mysql_start.bat file?
What do you see when you run .\xampp\xampp-portcheck.exe file?
On Vista right click on these files and run as administrator if you have issues.

The same applies equally to Vista, an OS designed for protecting absolute computer/Internet beginners, but once you learn to master it, you will have a rewarding and satisfying experience.

.\xampp\readme_en.txt file quote:
Step 5: XAMPP UNINSTALL? Simply remove the "xampp" Directory.
But before please shutdown the apache and mysql.

Currently I can't develop anything on my machine. My Dreamweaver is down. Right now I can only view files directly from htdocs as localhost.
G:/xampp/htdocs = http://localhost/
If I try to view files that are in a subfolder of htdocs then Vista acts like I am trying to download a file.
http://localhost/myFolder/ = G:/xampp/htdocs/myFolder/index.php is treated as unknown and vista wants to download it. If I choose to open the file then Vista runs a loop and hands me the option of downloading the file or opening it again through IE 6.
