hope this helps
Thanks for your effort.
I ran NETSTAT as you suggested, nothing is using port 80.
In the beginning of my struggle to make IIS working, Skype was active and using port 80, but in another forum I was adviced not to have Skype running when I needed IIS to run, so I changed settings in Skype not to start when booting the computer.
My Vista is fully updated and restarted several times.
But still I'm unable to make IIS run. When I try, I now get the error message:
The format of the specified network name is invalid
(Exception from HRESULT: 0X800704BE)
