I put this down to two possible causes (WAMP is running on vista for me):
ISP Blocking port 80 for incoming connections
What I found is that my Wireless router needed port 80 open, and so did the antivirus.
There is probably an option on yor router to enable web server or something...
...that is if you are using it at home.
oh by the way ignore the WAMP icon saying its offline, it doesn't work anyway.
open the services snap-in and make sure both WAMP-SQL and WAMP APACHE or HTTP server are running and set to automatic (WAMP didn't do this for me)

Thought i'd add my Tuppence-Worth and Thank You too. Changing to 8080, closing Skype and re-starting worked perfectly. (I did find it odd that when i (out of idle curiousity) opened Skype again, it worked fine, but maybe i shouldnt even go down that road. yet)

if you can connect to 127.0.0.1, but not localhost,
its more than likely that you rushed through your
windows setup and skipped the network part (the same way we use to in xp)
but vista is a little more touchy youll nee to open your host file in notepad
it's in windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
youll see a line that looks like this
youll need to comment this line out like below and add the second line as shown
to make your server live just find the http setting in your firewall and set it to allow inbound (its already allowing outbound or else you couldnt read this )

I should of posted back to say this issue has been resolved, it was sometime back and i'm not sure exactly how I resolved the problem.
I think I run the setup as administrator to make UAC happy then had to go into services and make sql, apache etc all start automatically.

solved the problem... nod was interupting
1. JUST open up your Nod32 window
2. Navigate to Setup> Advanced Setup Tree > Web Access Protection > HTTP > Web Browsers
3. Uncheck the default browser whoch u chose while installing WAMP, in my case iexplorer
