Windows 7 & XAMPP

I have downloaded Xampp for Windows 1.7.3 - Although everything appears to install correctly Apache will not run, MySql runs just fine. in the top of the control panel I read " XAMPP Control Panel (not responding).
I have downloaded and installed the Xampp on 5 different occasions and still the same problem exists.
I have full admin rights with this PC and the software has been installed accordingly.Windows 7 & XAMPP-xampp.jpg

Any quick tips on resolving this problem?

Thanks for your help.
