MySQL and Apache don't start

Hi everybody,
i have installed xampp without problems, but when i've launched MySQL it doesn't work. it say Error: MySQL shutdown unexpectedly.
I paste you also the error log:
2014-02-23 22:05:25 4760 [Note] Plugin 'FEDERATED' is disabled.

2014-02-23 22:05:25 4760 [ERROR] InnoDB: File C:\xampp\mysql\data\ib_logfile0: 'aio read' returned OS error 187. Cannot continue operation

It was happened also with Apache (not with the same log obviously) in the first launch of Xampp, but after a few of minutes it started. So i don't know how and why, please help me.
P.S.: i'm a noob for this things such as programming, so speak with me with an elementary language please.
Thank you very much

As per last note in the MySQL paged linked, adding the line:


to my my.ini (in my xampp/mysql/bin folder) fixed the issue.
