Configure SSL in IIS :The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

Tja... annoying! Obviously someone else is listening on 443, let's find out who.

Command prompt: netstat -ano
Looking for port 443 and memorizing PID.

Troublesome PID = 8952. Open Task manager -> Processes - sort by PID.
Ah, here it is. Skype! Kill it, and you will be able to successfully configure your web site to work over SSL.
