Don't install XAMPP into your users directory.
Install it directly on c:\xampp\

If this will not help, please maximize your debug information. Read and follow this thread:
[Q&A] Insufficient debug information - Apache starting issue

best wishes,
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
