Error on port 80

  Zsolt-314301 20:43 26 Feb 2003

a webserver is already running on port 80, for best results please stop server and restart application.
This is the error message which I would recive every time I start windows(WinXP Pro )! I made changes to the services through the Administrative tools, Services SSDP discovery service and the Universal plug and play host.
In the latest issue of the pc-adviser did I found this where they said that these services aren't needed!?
Any help?

If not, mate. Your HDD is open on your IP, whatever your IP is anyone can view a file with it. Just tap it into FTP or IE...

Anyway, get a firewall (Not the XP one), and you need this NOW: click here

Also, try the port scan - click here
