How to stop port 80 on winwows?


I am trying to install Localhost Apache/Mysql for trying my hand at web development. Unfortunately Apache won't install because apparently my port 80 was blocked by Skype. I quit skype and tried again but no joy. I am still having port 80 blocked. So any ideas how to free port 80 on my Windows 7?

You can use this command on command line, to see which process is using port 80

Code:
netstat -o -n -a | findstr 0.0:80

Generally on windows it's the World Wide Web Publishing Service. So open your services, and stop World Wide Web Publishing Service.
