Find out which process is using which port in Windows

I just installed xampp on my computer today and was not able to start apache. Usually this is the case when port 80 is already used. So how can I find out which process is the suspect?

Netstat will give you a complete list with which process is using which port. So just look up which one is using port 80 and remember the PID.

Replace “1056” with your pid number of course. In my case I found that the criminal was skype.

Skype blocks port 80

To remove skype listening on port 80 do following steps:

  1. Go to Tools\Options\Advanced\Connections
  2. Remove tick  “use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections
  3. Restart Skype
