Can you verify the SQL Service is running? (Start -> Administrative Tools -> Services)
I would also look in the Event Viewer for any errors.
You may also want to try rebooting to see if that resolves the issue.
If you see any errors in the Event Log or can post the full exact error here, it will help troubleshoot the issue.
Hope this helps!

Check your SQL connection with SQLAdapter if you are able to connect it is clear that it is not problem with your DB server. Usually the VS 2008 got the privilege to open ports dynamically on the system while debugging.

I don't think SQL is the issue, I create a new website with nothing in it and it still won't run locally. just keep getting page not found, then i diagnose the problem and get the same Localhost not able to establish a connection on port (whichever port
number it takes)

Commented out the line
with a # in the hosts file and it now works.
Question is, where did that suddenly come from, has a Microsoft update done it?

This update caused this:
Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB915597 (Definition 1.53.256.0)
It caused a removal of the IP mapping to localhost in the hosts file located in
You should include this line to the hosts file:
