  Thank you for your patience, as (I know) no-one is *paying* you to look at this, 
  or to even think about this.  I could be doing something stupidly
  wrong... many apologies if that is the case, which may be very frustrating for 
  you to decipher what is going wrong.  
  Here are the steps I took and and the results below.  
  1) From CMD window go into c:/ms4w and executed apache-uninstall.bat
     The Apache Web Server service is stopping.
     The Apache Web Server service has stopped.
     Removing the Apache Web Server service
     The Apache Web Server service has been removed successfully.
  2) Unzipped ms4w_2.0.zip (this is latest version available on the download page). 
     Results put into c:/ms4w_2.0
  3) From CMD window 
     C:\>cd ms4w_2.0
    Volume in drive C is HP_PAVILION
    Volume Serial Number is 15FB-1A52
      Directory of C:\ms4w_2.0
