I have XAMPP istalled and it has always worked with no problems. I just downloaded and installed Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2008 Express and SQL Server Management Studio and now I anything I try to open in a browser using localhost can't be found. I
assume their is some problem with accessing the Apache Server due to conflicts with the new software. Any one know how I can fix things so I can use both? Anyone else ever run into this problem.

IIS might be working on same port. You need to change default port of IIS See following

Thanks for the info. I changed the Xampp settings and now Xampp is working again apparently. However, when you access the Xampp start page and go to the status page, everything is reportend as disabled. There is a message on that page that says certain changes
to the configuration files may give false disable messages and I tried running a form using php and it worked so I guess the disabled messages are false but it be nice to not have these incorrect messages. I don't know if there is some easy fix for that. Anyway,
I thought people might want to know about this complication.
Also, The reason I changed Xampp and not IIS is because the instructions you sent don't seem to apply to my set up. I'm using Visual Web Developer which seems to have set up something called IIS Express and I don't seem to have any porgram such as IIS Manager.
I tried typing Inetmgr in both the start menu and in the terminal and got nothing. I also tried searching for Internet Information Services Manager and found nothing.

something called IIS Express
IIS Express is not like the full IIS. It's a trimmed down, localhost only, server which comes with SP1 for Visual Studio and WebMatrix. There should appear, when you run something in it, in the tray icon bar of Windows. You can exit it there if needed.

just make sure that both services are operating on different posts, try to listen on the same port from multiple services could cause un-predictable problems

You can change XAMPP port or phpMyAdmin port so you'll get no conflict with IIS.
