Windows pop-up message as belows:

Unable to bind to port [Localhost:8888]. ErrorCode: 10048.

This is usually due to another service running on this port. Run NETSTAT -A at a command prompt.

What can I do?

Tools menu -> Fiddler Options -> Connections tab -> Fiddler listens on port

There you can change the port that Fiddler uses.
