xampp for running cant figure out why

I can run xampp for some reason need to some help

when i try to start the following comes up : Error: Apache shutdown unexpectedly. 21:49:48 [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies, 21:49:48 [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method. 21:49:48 [Apache] Press the Logs button to view error logs and check 21:49:48 [Apache] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues 21:49:48 [Apache] If you need more help, copy and post this 21:49:48 [Apache] entire log window on the forums

You can open the event viewer from control panel>administrative tools. That may give you some more info as to the cause. As it says, a firewall may be blocking the port its trying to use, apache may not be installed correctly, or it might be missing the privileges it needs to run.
