12:40:29 [main] You are not running with administrator rights! This will work for
12:40:29 [main] most application stuff but whenever you do something with services
12:40:29 [main] there will be a security dialogue or things will break! So think
12:40:29 [main] about running this application with administrator rights!

12:40:29 [Apache] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
12:40:29 [Apache] or reconfigure Apache and the Control Panel to listen on a different port
12:40:29 [main] The FileZilla module is disabled

12:41:42 [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
12:41:42 [Apache] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
12:41:42 [Apache] Press the Logs button to view error logs and check
12:41:42 [Apache] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
12:41:42 [Apache] If you need more help, copy and post this
12:41:42 [Apache] entire log window on the forums

What should I do? (brand new to all this)
Please help.
Thanks.
