The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process

I am reading this

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/890015

and ran netstat -ano   and   netstat -b

and the only things that report running on port 80 are the System and System Idle Process (only in netstat -ano), nestat -b doesn't list anything.

Should i go ahead and follow the advice about changing the registry?

on a tip from another forum, i revisted the "Sites" listed in the IIS manager. I did have 2 sites, but one was "stopped" so I thought it didn't matter that it was also running on port 80. Well apparently it might have, i changed the port number on the stopped site and I haven't received that error again. I'd like to keep this question open for a bit, just in case the error returns-

Yes, if you have invalid IP addresses listed, you should change them and check if it works. Just make sure you back up the registry first.

Then the error is probably somewhere else. More info about your setup and which events if any are logged would be appreciated.

no problem,
 
Cannot register the URL prefix 'http://*:80/' for site '1'. The necessary network binding may already be in use. The site has been deactivated.  The data field contains the error number.

i do have antivirus, ill do a scan, but this is a fresh server, hasn't even been open to the internet for more than 4 days. I've been running asp applications on IIS, that working with a GIS *(geographic information systems) software package. Apparently, it's caused errors like crashing the w3wp.exe, but there's no info about these errors-

Try using tcpview to check for listening connections on port 80 just to make sure.
