Most likely because Tomcat has been moving away from the idea that it should have any webapps pre-installed in the server. Starting somewhere around Tomcat 5, the Tomcat admin and management webapps became separate downloads.
Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
Tomcat 7 still ships with the ROOT web app - the URL "/" should work out of the box. Are there any error messages in one of the log files?

No errors were in the log file.
Perhaps i have not given enough info previousely.
I installed it on a separate PC and the full installation works 100%. But on my pc, the Tomcat service starts up ok, no errors in the log and not errors during statup.
Also When I check the 3 ports Tomcat uses using netstat I can not see any other ports trying to listen to those 3 ports. The interresting thing is, when i STOP the Tomcat service, then try netstat, there are nothing listening to ports 8080 and the other 2.
When i start Tomcat service, only Tomcat is listening to the three ports.
Yet, when I try the localhost:8080, i get page not found.
When i STOP Tomcat and try localhost:8080, I get a connection error and NOT the no page.
It seems that Tomcat is returning the NO page to display.
