Yesterday, everything was working fine.  Today, when I access http://localhost/xampp/, and click on phpMyAdmin, I get an Object not found! error message.  I swear I haven't touched anything between yesterday and today in the root folder.  However, when I browse any of my PHP sites, example:  http://localhost/dummysite/, everything is fine - every PHP page is visible in my browser and I receive no errors.  HELP!  How did this happen and how do I fix it?  Thank you!

you need to have a look in your xampp logs.

Usually there are in the logs folder inside the main install folder.

On a linux server the default location for this folder would be /opt/lampp/logs

Basically go to the log folder and have it open then go to the website and generate the error a few times, then look at the end of the log files which get modified so you can see a more detailed error.

There is nothing called "logs" in this directory:  C:\xampp.  I am also running on a windows Vista platform, not Linux.

I went into windows services and looked at XAMPP service.  It's not started (never had a problem with this before), so I clicked on start and got the following error message:  windows could not start the XAMPP Service service on local computer.  Error2:  the system cannot find the specified file.  

Something obviously became corrupted - I just don't know how to fix it without having to re-install everything...

this page describes where the log files are. I'd start off with the apache and mysql logs.

First you can check xampp logs and check if anything crashed in  xampp\phpMyAdmin\config.inc

And If still problem persists you can reinstall xammp and offcourse you can still have the "Projects" and "Databases" you already have in your current xammp . While you un install it would ask for the confirmation for the backup of "Projects" and "Databases". You may try this at the worst case.

I'd go with reinstall anyway - this would be the fastest way to run everything again.

I ended up reinstalling XAMPP.
