Try this:

Start -> run -> cmd

Find ip address of your ethernet card.

Then try to open http://ip.address:8080/Plone

See if that works.  Obviously there is a bug in socket handling code.  I may
have an idea of what it is.
You can also try:

Edit c:\program files\plone 2\dat\etc\zope.conf and search for ip address
that zope will attempt to bind to.
It might be try to replace it with and restart
