If you have Windows Professional or Ultimate you can use IIS to display web pages.

See http://webmasterjuice.com/how-to-activate-built-in-web-server-windows for more information on how to do this.

And if you have one of the other versions of Windows 7, you can install WAMP or XAMPP and use the Apache web server.

Usually if you want to display php/mysql, you use XAMPP as a web server....

If you want instead ASPX/ASP/Sql Server instances, you may drive into IIS...
