The port in use is determined by the Listen directive in Apache's  
configuration file.  You can quickly find that by going Start -> All  
Programs -> Apache HTTP Server 2.2.6 -> Configure Apache Server ->  
Edit the Apache httpd.conf Configuration File.  You'll probably find  
a 'Listen 80' statement in the file.

Finding and removing (or disabling) whatever is getting in the way of  
Apache is up to you -- we can't see what else is installed on your  

The Systray icon is a small program called ApacheMonitor.exe that  
gets installed together with the server and activated.  It doesn't  
always show up, especially if you're on a domain account and your  
profile is in a strange place.  All ApacheMonitor does is display the  
status of the Apache2.2 Windows Service.  You can also use it to  
start and stop the Windows Service.  Presence or absence of  
ApacheMonitor in your Systray does not have any bearing on the actual  
Apache2.2 Windows Service.
