I was trying to install Apache, and I noticed it was forced to port 8080 because IIS was already using port 80. So I disabled the IIS service, and now there's some other server that's still using the same port. It contains no files, I can't see any related services, and the only hint I have is this Server respose header:

Server: Microsoft-HTTPAPI/2.0

How can I get rid of this other server, or at least get it to move? I've never seen it on any other computers with the same setup.

You may have Web Deployment Tool running.

Go to Control Panel > Security > Administrative Tools and disable it, or

net stop msdepsvc

Thanks, that was it! – Ryan O'Hara Mar 11 '12 at 20:00

cports is a very useful tool on Windows. It will list all programs and the port numbers used by the programs.
