Rather than forcing it to stop. Look at your start bar, at the bottom right. Look for the apache taskbar icon (green triangle within a white circle, and a pink feather point to the top left). Right click on it an select Open Apache Monitor. Click the Stop button. Apache is attempt to stop itself. If that fails, again right click on the Apache taskbar icon and select Open Services.

Find the Apache service. Its proably named Apache for Apache1.x and Apache2 for Apache2.x
Right click on it and select Properties. Click the Stop button. See if that will stop the apache service from running. If it doesnt then either you have some form of malware controlling Apache, or Apache is misconfigured and causing it to not respond.

While you are still in the Servcies window for the Apache service chose Startup type to Manual or Disabled. This will prevent Apache from running once Windows has loaded up.
