Hi Rude Awakening,
Your thread headline "XAMPP help" is not self speaking. What should others expect if they read that title? 99,9% of the threads here are some sort of help request.
Your images are not visible without open them in a new browser window.
Informations in images are not searchable. Thats bad for others who maybe have the same problem and searching for the text of the messages.

I don't see any relationship between phpmyadmin and this thread here exept you use the word phpmyadmin here

i don't understand that. You are trying to remove which option from where?
Rude Awakening wrote:tried system restore to Monday also... no dice.
Why should that solve your problem? Was XAMPP working on monday?
Relating to your images, there are some more questions i have:
XAMPP is installed in which destination?
The XAMPP control panel is saved where?
How do you start the control panel?
Your thread left behind more questions than informations.
