After installation cannot perform any actions: Access Denied Attention The "Main" web does not exist

I have performed a basic setup of Foswiki for testing purposes on a Windows 7 machine.

I have followed the installation instructions and run the configuration setup, I have not performed any manual changes to files. When I attempt to perform any action in the system it tells me that I do not have permissions. If I try to modify the AdminGroup I receive the following error

Access Denied Attention The "Main" web does not exist

The foswiki\data folder does not appear to have a Main web, if I try to create a new Main web from the provided link I receive

Access Denied Attention Access check on ManagingWebs failed. Action "CHANGE": access not allowed on root.

Does anyone know how I can gain access to write articles?

How did you install the wiki? With the installer? How come the data folder does not have a Main folder within it? It should have one. Also, you will have to login as "Admin" in order to create new webs.
