1. Wamp is installed in C: drive root
2. The wamp install creates a wamp folder in C: and a \www folder in it.
3. You need to create a new folder in Wamp's \www folder e.g. C:\wamp\ www\anewfolder
N.B. \wamp might install as C:\wamp64 or similar.

You then start all Wamp services and point your browser to localhost/anewfolder (or whatever you named the new folder).

Then you have broke your Wamp installation.
* Uninstall Wamp
* Delete the \wamp64 folder (Wamp wont reinstall if that folder still exists)
* Reinstall Wamp
* Create a new folder in C:\wamp64\www folder e.g. C:\wamp64\www\anewfolder
* Download the Joomla full package from https://downloads.joomla.org/cms/joomla ... format=zip (as Per Yngve Berg recommended)
* Unzip into C:\wamp64\www\anewfolder
* Start all Wamp services and point your browser at localhost/anew folder (or whatever you have named the folder).

And the reason I knew that is because I made the same mistake of trying to install in thw /www folder instead of creating a folder under it :-[
