To be honest with you m8 I can't help you much more as I just don't know enough. But if it was me though I would Uninstall EVERYTHING to do with Xampp, Apache, MySQL, PHP, PHPMyAdmin -Totally get rid of the lot and then search the registry for all keys entered there for xampp, apache, mysql, php, phpadmin, just do a search of the registry for apache and then delete all found keys and again do the same for mysql and so on. BUT FIRST remember to uninstall the apache and mysql services if you installed them as a service when you initially installed xampp. Then you can run the xampp uninstaller or you will have problems later on.
And then I would Delete ALL the Temp files in each of the temp folders including internet explorer temp files and firefox cache and then I would Reboot the computer and start again.
I would first of all make a partition on my Hard drive for how ever much room as you require to run your sites with an extra few MB's of HD space just incase and then I would install xampp onto the newly created partition but not before I had formatted the partition first. And then I would hopefully find that Everything is working fine
Do all that and i'm sure it will work for you.
p.s an hours work tops m8 (depending on how big you make the partition because of formatting times)
