Joomla! version: 2.5

MySQL version: 5.5.27
Akeeba Backup version which took the backup: Latest Stable (just updated 1st march 2013)
Kickstart version used to extract the backup: Latest Stable
Description of my issue:
I managed to run Akeeba Backup pro to back up my site with the Alternate (Failsafe) enabled. I took a back up of my live site and tried to install on Xampp (I always make it a point to update, so its the latest version), Using Kickstart, and also using eXtract Wizard (I get the same problem with both).
Using Kickstart, i get no error messages, and proceed to install to the final stage. The frontend of my site appears fine. However, upon logging into the backend and trying to access Admin Tools from Components, I just get a blank page with no error messages.
When I first began to access Kickstart.php via the browers however, I was not able (Notably the Fantastic Admin Tools kicking in and preventing access! (I love Admin Tools :)) As such i copied and cut .htaccess and .htaccess.admintool to another location, and was able to proceed with Kickstart, and install etc. I then copied the htaccess files back, but could not access admin tools.
I then tried again, this time not copying the htaccess files back at all. Still no cigar.
I have a feeling it might something to do with Ajax? I have an Ajax Dockcart for VM, which if accessed from Components, leads to Module Manager. Rest of the components SEEM to work fine, but not sure. I have to test all of them.
I'm actually testing backups as recommened in the Akeeba Backup Literature. Followed the recommended FTP download instructions as well (Binary) but still have this problem. Tried to download via browser, no cigar. Please help.
