Interesting. You could even made mistakes by cut-and-paste:)

Okay, I have given it a search on google by the string "An operation was 
attempted on something that is not a socket". This particular message 
can result from two situations:

	1. Apache 2.0.43 with McAfee Firewall. Since you run with Apache 2.047, 
so it is out of question. Because it is said the problem was fixed in 
Apache 2.044.

	2. If you have a IP address from Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol 
(DHCP) server, and you have a third party product installed on your 
computer and also run the commands 'ipconfig', 'release' and 'renew', 
your windows sockets registry entries may be corrupted.

Based on your claim, you can still run IIS on port 80 fine, I can't say 
your sockets registry entries totally corrupted, but, I still think it 
is somehow related to your port/socket. Maybe you still can try to 
change the port 80 to 8100 in your config to see what happend. In case 
it is your socket registry entries corrupted, see the following link how 
to repair it:

Good luck
