Try entering the ERROR CODE you have in to Google. You will find the answer to your question there.

Another program, such as virus-scanning software, has reassigned port 25 to another port. Disable all services that are not essential, including antivirus software, and then restart the server.

Yep, possibly something is getting in the way - try and allow it to use the port it wants to access.
