Thank you very much for response.  I figured that since I was writing the
cgi, that it was a developers question, and not a users, sorry if I put it
in the wrong section. 

 AHHH!!!!  I found it.  in the system tray, right-click on the apache icon,
and the "open services" button. 
right click on the "apache2" service, tab to "logon" and there it is.  I
stopped and restarted the service, 
and all is working now.  

This is perfect.
