You will have to be an Administrator and have UAC disabled to run most things like XAMPP and system edits.
Can you open http://localhost/xampp/
Can you open http://localhost/xampp/phpinfo.php - if so look for the line Loaded Configuration File which should show the php.ini file in the xampp\apache\bin folder.
Have you run a disk cleanup utility which may have deleted the lang.tmp file in the xampp\htdocs\xampp folder and running the http://localhost/xampp/ and selecting your language again may help.
If you have used a disk cleanup utility then you will have deleted many .tmp files and many zero length files that may be needed, so have the utility bypass the XAMPP installation folder.

Normally if your PC and system is running as it should then XAMPP will install and run out of the box and only a very few people have issues out of the many thousands who download and install per week.
Your problem is slightly different to the OP as he can't even access using the 127.0.0.1 local loop back address.TwistedFate wrote:...now it won't load localhost.
I can use http://127.0.0.1/ and get to to it but not when I try to use 'localhost' itself...
