No hassle, it's more efficient than my tiny bit of French or Italian :)

This is a very common failure in third party junk products that install
themselves into the network stack.  The stack consists of the drivers
you see in Control Panel - Networks - [network adapter] Properties...
when look at the Networking tab of the adapter properties page, it will
show you a list of network stack drivers.  These might include

Client for Microsoft Networks
QoS Packet Scheduler
File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks

etc.  These happen to be Microsoft drivers.  Third party drivers which
are incompatible with the Windows Sockets API (junk drivers) will cause
Apache to fail to start up; that behavior should happen no matter which
Apache httpd package you obtain from where ever.

What is in your list of adapter drivers?  That would help us to suggest
if there is something you should uninstall.  The other possibility is
that a malicious driver was installed for your network stack by some
trojan or malware app.  In the case of that possibility, it may not
show up in the list of drivers.
