My OS is Windows XP Professional with SP3
I have downloaded XAMPP and it appears to have installed fine.

((( Never change anything that is working UNLESS you totally understand what problems your keypresses are going to cause and how to fix them )))
I then went into \extra and opened httpd-ssl and changed the ports etc there from 443 to 4430. I do have Skyper installed but have unticker the 'use ports 80 and 443'.
(( DITTO above advice )))
If I go the XAMPP control panel and do a port check I get the following
Apache <HTTP> port 80 program C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\inetinfo.exe. I get the same for Apache <HTTPS> save that the port number is 443. Port 8080 (which I specified as my local host etc above) is listed as being used by Tomcat, which I don't know anything about and which is not listed as active on my control panel.
Any ideas what I should do? I am new to this and have spent three days trying to download it - I need help in words of one syllable please!
Thanks in advance
