how to find the application using port 80 and kill it on windows 7

Dear experts here:

I want to begin to learn PHP and Mysql programming. I have downloaded "xampp" combined module on my windows 7 laptop and tried to install it. It prompted me error for start apache server and said the port 80 is being used now.

Then I tried to find which application is using port 80 and want to stop it. I got the following result by running netstat command:


C:\Windows\system32>netstat -aon | findstr :80
  TCP    0.0.0.0:80             0.0.0.0:0              LISTENING       4
  TCP    0.0.0.0:8092           0.0.0.0:0              LISTENING       4
  TCP    172.16.49.9:49328      65.112.85.56:80        TIME_WAIT       0
  TCP    [::]:80                [::]:0                 LISTENING       4
  TCP    [::]:8092              [::]:0                 LISTENING       4


and also, I downloaded a tool called "CurrPorts" to find more detailed information about this port, the copy screen shows the result of this tool.

How could I find the specific application using port 80 and kill the process?

I want to have xampp running as soon as possible. thanks.

You may find it easier to just change the port xampp runs on.  Instructions here.

Both IIS and Skype use port 80.  If either is installed, they will prevent Apache from running.  It is common to run XAMPP on an alternate port when that happens.

You should add the -b command switch to netstat (requires elevation) to see who's responsible (didn't use findstr as the process is in a line under it). While reconfiguring another port for your application, personally it would just kill me not knowing how my own Windows version works and who already grabbed this port without my knowledge.
