Hi Angela,

just installing isn't enough. At least the component Apache needs to be started successful. So, if you take a look into your XAMPP control panel please, is Apache labeled in green?
What does the \xampp\apache\logs\access.log and \xampp\apache\logs\access.log show?

We can't know also because we need some more information about the full error text and what the browser address bar shows at the time the error is showing.

best wishes,

Thanks for responding so fast :)

The apache has got an x in it and is not highlighted green, however the MySql is in green.

There you have the problem why Apache can not start. Skype is blocking your ports 80 and 443.
Configure Skype to not use these ports. That can easily be done in the Skype configuration.
