You can't simply end the program, because system is really meant to be your (operating) system.
Windows uses a proxy driver which is handling port 80 for other processes.

Again go to your Windows Services and search for a service named WWW-publishing or WorldWideWeb-publishing or something like that. This service have to be stopped.
Another try would be to go into your remove Windows components window and uninstall IIS there.

I have removed the program and restarted my computer

Should I run Apache again?

Sure, give it a try.
But you can check with netstat first if the ports are free now.

Ok, the port is free, thanks for helping me with that :)

Unfortunately, the XAMPP menu is still not displaying the localhost/xampp/xampp.php, so there is still an issue to be resolved

Again, what is showing on http://localhost/
http://localhost/xampp/xampp.php (C:\xampp\htdocs\xampp\xampp.php) doesn't exist on default installations.

Okay, your error.log is fine.

Have you changed anything? e.g. renamed, deleted or changed the C:\xampp\htdocs\index.php file?
Or changes in the C:\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf?

The reason i'm asking is, that by default http://localhost/ should execute the index.php file which redirects you to the orange XAMPP Administration page.
For any reason this doesn't happen in your environment.

I did make changes to the httpd.conf on the OLD Apache server, which I already uninstalled. Could this be the cause of this problem? If so, where can I find the default httpd.conf document, or what do I change?

Only if your current XAMPP Apache reads that old config file. Please search your system harddisk for any httpd.conf files

The only httpd.conf file I found is the one I mentioned earlier.

However, I did find ones that are under the xampp\apache\conf folder, but with names like httpd-default.conf and httpd-xampp.conf, but only one with the exact name httpd.conf

Ok, so it appears that the index (i.e. the page that displays when the localhost is typed in the address) is not the one found in xampp\htdocs\index.php, if that is relevant. I am not sure where the localhost is getting the file to display this...

Not exactly relevant, because the page you get is named index.html. You can edit this one and check if this is the index.html of the XAMPP package or a different one.

Ok, so I modified this page to say something different, but the localhost does not display the same word I modified the index.html to. It still says "It works".
