I need to run xampp. Xampp uses localhost as well. How can I turn off iis 7 so that I can run xampp?
Thanks in advance.

stop and disable the www service
type services.msc from the run command prompt > scroll down to World Wide Publishing service.
or go to control panel > Administrative Tools > Services.msc > World Wide Publishing service.

I disabled it but now I don't know how to start it.
I am not able to find World Wide Publishing service in services.msc.
Could anyone tell me how to start iis7 again in vista?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks I got it.
Silly me, I just need to go to admin tools> services> www publishing > start.

I have tried repeatedly to uninstall IIS 7 from my windows 7 as I need to allow XAMPP's Apache and WordPress run on http://localhost.
Per your recent suggestions, I have stopped and disabled the World Wide Publishing Service and I have equally
turned off all windows features related to the Internet Information Services, including Web Management Tools, but to no avail: IIS 7 continues to surface when I launch Apache or my self hosted WordPress blog on
Could you please help; I greatly appreciate it!

If you are sure on IIS disable. Try to clear your browser cache.

Hello @ eng_piyush,
You stopped IIS to use xampp.
You made changes to use xampp.
You need to have IIS running.
You have tried to restart IIS and are having problems ?
You have tried the admin tools> services> www publishing > start and it is not working ?
Look at Steve's Blog post for Apache
http://www.iislogs.com/steveschofield/iis7-post-44-iis7-and-apache-on-the-same-machine and IIS
running on the same system.
