How to FIX IIS

I recently had an issue where IIS would not start giving a spurious error "Unexpected Error 0x8ffe2740". I did a google and found this site which showed the problem was Skype grabbing port 80, genius!

I think its for file transfers for people behind proxys. That said its irritating, only slightly less irritating than IIS error code, I mean how hard is it to put a meaningful message?
