I installed Xampp on my desktop computer, no problems, everything is working fine...
Then, i installed this on my laptop (asus):
Mysql is working fine
Apache is not starting.

What can i do?

This is the error report:

Microsoft IIS is blocking port 80. Disable Microsoft IIS, if you want to use Apache instead.
