it can not work on win8 (possible to virus)

P: 1
Recently, my PHP (5, as installed by the XAMPP package) stopped
working, and won't let me run locally-served PHP files in my web
browsers.

I think (but I'm not sure) that the Apache web server is running
properly, but whenever I try to open a PHP file (for instance, by
opening http://localhost, which should take me to the XAMPP start/
admin page, index.php), my browsers are unable to run it, and only
prompt me to open or save it. If I chose open, the same prompt
repeats.

Any ideas? I thought one possibility might be that I upgraded my
installation of McAfee Virus Scan recently, which I've heard can cause
problems with Apache.

Does this seem to be a problem with PHP, Apache, or both? Does this
sound like a possible symptom of the VirusScan issue?

Thanks very much for any insight you can provide.
