ERROR running force:auth:web:login: Cannot start the OAuth redirect server on port PortInUseAction.

i am trying to connect a dev hub in visual studio.

When I try to execute the command force:auth:web:login -d -a DevHub, I am getting an error ERROR running force:auth:web:login:  Cannot start the OAuth redirect server on port PortInUseAction. 

Try this: 
Kill the process running on port 1717 or use a custom connected app and update OauthLocalPort in the sfdx-project.json file.

I uninstalled everything and reinstalled it. It then worked.

I even tried to kill the port 1717 via task manager, The one with PID 0 is what I tried to kill by clicking on end task

I tried killing it but that too didn't work.

Can anyone suggest what can be done
