Hi Guys,
just installled 1.7.7 and each time I start apache it stops almost imediatley after, it stops each time I click the admin button or open any browser, even when I open Command Promt.
I am running XP with service pk3 and I have changed the skype port to 8000, I have gone into Windows Firewall settings and added Apache as an exceptions.

This is the error log:
