This morning, I found that sickbeard would not run for me.
I messed about a bit and added more problems to be fixed rather than in any way helping to resolve the main issue.
I'm on Windows 7, was on build 499 of sickbeard and while it would start to run as it would open a browser tab to view it, it stopped running before it could be viewed.
They key is I am also running Avast and that had just updated to version 2014.9.0.2006
So see here for the source of the actual solution
Which is broken down to:
1) Go to "Settings"
2) Go to "Troubleshooting"
3) Expand "Redirect Settings"
4) Under "WEB" look for 8081 - or whatever port number you have set sickbeard to use
5) Remove "8081" - or whatever port number you have set sickbeard to use
6) Hit OK and wait about 2-3 minutes
Please don't be like me and do other things first as you may mess up your config and then have to waste time getting everything back to the way you want it.
If you have anything else that has stopped working that you access on your own machine at a specific port number, no harm in checking for those being redirected and removing the references to them too.
