Read the \xampp\apache\logs\error.log file for clues.

@geoj

After installing did you reboot?

If a reboot fails to work then try an alternative method of uninstalling/installing as outlined in this post:

Sometimes the current installer gives unpredictable issues and using the zip method often results in success.
