Wampserver crash : Apache does not start

It appears to be a common issue on Win XP SP2.
” The very simple solution is to uncheck the “Enable LMHOSTS Lookup” box in the TCP/IP protocol setup (under WINS setting). Here are the steps to do this:

Open “Control Panel” then “Network Connections.”
Right-click on “Local Area Connection” and select “Properties.”
Double-click on the “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” line to open the “Properties.”
On the “General” tab, click the “Advanced” button.
Select the “WINS” tab and uncheck the “Enable LMHOSTS Lookup” box.”
