You get that message because something (probably 'SYSTEM') is using port 80 which is the standard http port.

Because you are running Windows Ultimate which include Microsoft IIS (the Microsoft Webserver) what is started automatically and uses Port 80 (as well as Apache). You already have a webserver running.

Setup your Windows Installation not to start Microsoft IIS and reboot.
