Error 0x80070020 in localhost in IIS 7.5 in Windows 7 Professional

I started seeing the Error 0x80070020 in localhost in IIS 7.5 in Windows 7 Professional  since 3 days.  Prior to that I was using the localhost in IIS 7.5 in Windows 7 Professional  successfully to test my website applications prior to actual transfer to webserver.
Can anyone help what is wrong and how to set it right

Sounds like this is being locked by another process. You can use process explorer or try this:

  netsh http show servicestate

  Good luck

Have you restarted the machine complety? The error message from MS indicates that IIS can't be started because another process has a port in use that it needs.

Is this the same error you are receiving?

Does any other process on the machine take port 80 or 443?

Jermorse: Yes I am receiving the same error as in the link that you suggested.
Please see the output from command prompt for netstat command.  I do not see
0.0.0.0:80 or 0.0.0.0:443

It almost looks like you don't have a local IP address.

0.0.0.0 is not
127.0.0.1 is not
169.254.54.247 is not
:: is not


Please check that you do have a local IP address assigned on your NIC adaptor.
Maybe try repairing the NIC adaptor in windows?

THis does seem strange is that netstat from when your IIS 7.5 service was running? Do you have different port bindings in place on IIS that default?

Do you have a router or firewall between the machine and the Internet?

Thanks

My local host is now working normally.  I guess what went wrong in the last 5 days.  I am not sure whether my guess is correct.  I was in Honolulu, Hawaii for a business meeting in the last few days and in hotel I request broadband connrectivity during my stay there.Only during those 5 days, localhost in my laptop was not working and it started working again after I checked out of the room.  Perhaps their broadband used the ports required for localhost.  Now the problem is solved without any intervention.

Yes sometimes hotel broadband can make changes to your network adaptor settings. It sounds like once you were off that network and local to your laptop only the network adaptor settings returned. The netstat you provided seemed to show no localhost or it was being masked somehow by the broadband connection in the hotel?

Strange.
