Ok - that much looks good.

It sure sounds like you are doing the right things.  Try this - once the
httpd window is closed, look in your Task Manager (rt-click the start bar)
and see that there are no 'apache' or 'httpd' processes running.  If there
are, kill them and let us know - terminating the httpd you 'see' in the
console window should be killing them off.
