It just says "System". But, I did manage to fix this, and since this is a common problem, I will share. Port 80 on windows 7 is occupied by a program called "World Wide Web Publishing Service". Not sure what it does, don't really care either, I've had it turned off for awhile now and nothing dire has happened. So, to turn this off, right click on "computer", click on "manage", click on "service & applications", then click on "services", and then scroll down to "world wide web publishing service". Right click on it, and tell it to "stop"! This fixed my problem INSTANTLY!!
