Hi. I'm pretty much a newbie. I'm not quite sure whether I'm in the right forum. So please help.

I installed a php installation package called WinLAMP from http://winlamp.sourceforge.net/. However, due to some problems during installation, I uninstalled the package. Now, I'm using XAMPP installation package (http://www.apachefri...g/en/xampp.html) and all the components (MySQL, Apache, phpMyadmin, etc) are working fine. The problem now is that whenever I entered http://localhost/ in Mozilla Firefox, I'll get WinLAMP welcome page. I will only get XAMPP welcome page when I enter http://localhost/xampp/. I do not encounter this problem when using Internet Explorer. This is weird because I'm very sure that I have totally remove WinLAMP (Start>>All Programs>>WinLAMP>>Uninstall WinLAMP). I also checked the directory in which I installed the WinLAMP package and it has been totally removed. And just like you to know that I'm using Windows XP Pro.

To summarise, I would like to know:-

a) whether I'm having two localhost.
b) if I am, how do I remove the localhost installed by WinLAMP?
c) if I'm not, why did I get the WinLAMP welcome page?

Please help me to solve this problem. If I am in the wrong forum, please refer me to the correct one.

A fast reply is greatly appreciated.
