how to disable http.sys

Copper Contributor

I am using HFS fileserver on my win2019 essentials server. It uses TCP port 80..

But there is also another process (PID 4) listening to port 80. I couldn't find the right service to stop in 

How can this be fixed ??

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HTTP

Change the value of "Start" to 4, which is Disabled.



Thanks Dave! I'd been fighting with that service for a while. This did the trick. :)

Glad to hear, you're welcome.
