IIS Manager not starting due to Skype

So I came across an odd problem where IIS manager refused to start with the message "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070020)." After much digging, I realized Skype interferes with the port 80 being used by IIS manager. Closing Skype resolved the problem!
