  • unregister the misleading mysql windows service (click on the green tick icon in the control panel)
  • stop and close all XAMPP programs (including the XAMPP control panel)
  • uninstall/delete XAMPP completely
  • reinstall XAMPP to the recommend path C:\xampp, NOT C:\Program Files (x86)\xampp\ and NOT to your own users profiles folder like Desktop, My Documents, etc)
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
