I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Look in the column listed as PID for the Process ID using port 80, then open Task Manager and match it to the PID listed in the Processes tab.  If you don't see a PID column in Task Manager, click View --> Select Columns, then check in PID (Process Identifier) and click OK.  You should then see the PID column, and you can find the number listed above to see what is in conflict.  Once that's done, determine if that program should run on port 80 or if it can be moved to another port (commonly used ports are 8080, 1080, others at your discretion).
