Hmm.  You could try these ideas:

- check your 'hosts' file (/WINDOWS/system32/drivers/etc/hosts i think) 
for the following line:        localhost

- edit /ms4w/Apache/conf/httpd.conf and change the value of "ServerName" 
to localhost (and restart Apache)

Those are just ideas...maybe someone else has the definitive answer.
