Make sure that really all services are deinstalled, before you make a new installation.

Try and install XAMPP again.
Before uninstalling XAMPP, if you need to do it again, find and use the *_uninstallservices.bat files and don't forget to stop/uninstall the CP if it is also running as a service - it is done within the CP itself.
Look in folders apache and mysql for the uninstallservices bat files.
sc.exe is the Windows Service Control Manager and by simply typing sc.exe in the Run... box will give you back a list of all commands.
(you may have to open a command console window in the windows\system32 folder for XP but Vista should be the same to have the console stay open long enough to read the help screen - check first by typing at the Run... box cmd enter then cd\ enter then cd c:\windows\system32 enter then type sc.exe enter at the command prompt).
In Vista you would need to have Administrator privileges...
(often by right clicking on the file you wish to run or execute and selecting from the context menu Run as Administrator)
...and to disable the User Account Control (UAC) to do almost anything useful.

One is to add a user/pass to the my.ini file and the other is to remove the winmysqladmin shortcut from the OS Startup folder possible in:
C:\Documents and Settings\[logged on user name or All Users]\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
A search of the forum for either Keyword: violation or libmysql in the Forum: XAMPP For Windows and under the Category: Apache Friends In English will give you the details within some recent threads - but this issue has been around for a while now.
BTW, WinMySQLAdmin is deprecated and the use of phpMyAdmin is just fine for most database administration purposes, however within those search results you may find an alternative solution at the MySQL web site if you really have a need.
