hi, I would suggest that you uninstall the Web server components you have so far, and install the XAMPP stack instead. This comes preconfigured and is well be supported with documentation:
Go to ApacheFriends Web site for the download installation instructions and get XAMPP running properly first and then start the process of installing Joomla!
