As you can see that little fix has worked in part as your original error has gone, to be replaced by another slightly different error with no recommendations.
BTW OS 10038
is an Operating System error and you may find more clues in your System's Event Log Viewer - accessed from your Administrator Tools.
Try starting MySQL by running the C:\xampp\mysql_start.bat file.
Try starting Apache by running the C:\xampp\apache_start.bat file.
These bat files will usually provide feedback on any errors that are encountered.
And the MySQL Admin in the Control Panel is deprecated and so you should use phpMyAdmin instead.
Also take a look at this thread and see if there is any help there as it may be a registry issue here from your previous installs:

And here is a forum link to a similar issue with running XAMPP on X64 where the Win32DiableAcceptEx did the trick:
If all else fails:
Is there any specific reason to be using the lite version?
I recommend the full version after a proper uninstall of lite - make sure all modules are stopped and any XAMPP module services are uninstalled and the CP closed, then delete in total the xampp directory, don't try and overwrite the xampp directory when you reinstall as this is known to cause issues - you may have other issues now related to what I suspected when uninstalling and reinstalling as the Win32DiableAcceptEx has been known to fix your original issue.
If you reinstall try using the X86 program files directory and see if it makes a difference.
BTW this would not affect MySQL so there must be and issue with it that has now come to light
Also, after I added Win32DiableAcceptEx at the end of the http.conf file, Mysql would not stay started. This is the only change I've made so far.
The above linked forum page may help with this MySQL issue.
