Is Skype affecting my Wamp Server application?


I was facing the same problem, and I found out some programs like skype, IIS, zonealarm, firewall/antivirus, nod32, ESET conflict with wampserver. You should first check all your log files. You can access you log files by checking a folder called logs inside your WWW Folder. And if the problem still persist then make sure no other program conflict with wamp. Infact IIS and Apache/Wamp are both web server and might conflict in some way, so you have to disable IIS in order for Wamp to work 

If using skype, open skype -> tools -> options -> advanced -> connection and uncheck "use port 80 then restart wamp then skype
