Process cannot access the file error in IIS 7

One common for reason this kind of error in IIS 7 is the port used by the web site might be used by some other application in advance. One nice tool you could use to figure out what is happening here is sysinternals tcp view tool which is found here

Here is how I found the culprit for the issue my laptop.

It is actually Skype which uses port 80 for its own communication so does the error comes like that in IIS. You can use the edit bindings to change the port of the website in IIS as following.
