I had downloaded xampp 22.214.171.124 a month back on my windows vista computer. The same has been successfully installed, however, when i type http://localhost/ , it gives any of the following errors.
about: blank i.e. a blank page is shown(a problem with this webpage caused IE to close the window) OR
res://ieframe.dll/acr_depnx_error.htm#, ... splash.php OR
the internet explorer closes saying that DEP has closed your explorer as there was some malicious software trying to get access to your system
I can confirm that in xampp control panel, apache is successfully running on port 80 and mysql on port 3306.
I also confirm that xampp is installed in C drive and not in C:/Program files
I would be greatfull if anyone can help me solve this issue as I have been struggling for the last one month on this.
