What version of Windows are you running?  Have you checked the Event Viewer for more clues?

Without knowing anything about your setup I would guess that there could be one of two things going on.

1.  You already have some sort of web server installed.  Without running XAMP open a web browser type http://localhost and hit enter.  If anything other than an error comes back you are already running some type of web server.
2.  Windows Firewall is turned on.  This is the most likely problem.  Try turning it off or adding an exception.

I can't remember if you can run XAMP as an Administrator or not, but try that as well.

read this, first 4 lines of the error report:

9:42:47 AM [Apache] Problem detected!
9:42:47 AM [Apache] Port 80 in use by "Unable to open process" with PID 4!
9:42:47 AM [Apache] Apache WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
9:42:47 AM [Apache] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application

apache uses port 80 for localhost, skype uses it to you need to log out from skype and it'll probe rally work.
If you aren't useing skype tell me there are some other solutions.
