You could access your site's administrator page by typing your-site-url/administrator in the browser's address bar.

I have installed it on my local computer. I did localhost/administrator and i received 404 error

error message:

"HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found
The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."

I notice that as per the Technical Requirements (http://www.joomla.org/technical-requirements.html), for Joomla! 2.5.x, the minimum requirement is IIS7.

I believe that you are using IIS6.

What happens when you type localhost in the browser's address bar?

I have changed the default directory of IIS to host my website. That is before I installed Joomla. when I type localhost my webpage appears. Now after installing joomla i bring back the default directory of IIS. My default directory now is c:/inetpub. when I type localhost I receive the error 404.

And you ignore the advice given above:

IIS 6 is not supported by Joomla 2.5.x the minimum technical requirements of Joomla 2.5.x state that IIS7 or above is required

Suggest you disable IIS6 server, and uninstall MySQL and PHP on your computer and install a localhost AMP stack set such as WampServer 2 or XAMPP instead.
Alternatively, you could try installing an Apache web server instead of IIS and configure it to work with your existing MySQL and PHP installations.
