mysql is also giving errors and i cant see what it is as the control panel won't show.

Cant you open the control panel? Try Administrator Mode (simply click it or right click on icon and "Start as Administrator...".).

P.S.: If you like to install a new Xampp, do NOT simply overwrite the old installation. Backup (i.e. copy) the whole c:/xampp folder to a safe destination and/or rename to c:/xampp-old or similar. The folder c:/xampp/htdocs is holding all your HTML and PHP scripts, the folder c:/xampp/mysql/data is holding all your MySQL Databases. After installing a new Xampp to c:/xampp, you can try to restore the htdocs and the MySQL data folder into the new installation. Simply rename the new hdocs and data folder and copy the backuped folders to the proper location. If you are lucky, all your data and projects are ported to a new Xampp installation. If you formerly changed any Apache or PHP Configuration (i.e. httdp.conf etc. for Apache and php.ini for PHP), you probably have to apply these changes again in a new Xampp.

In order to remove or rename c:/xampp, you have to stop all Xampp processes like Apache, MySQL etc., as Windows wont let you do so if there are active processes running in that folder.
