There is probably an issue with the network card on your system (for example, there does not exist one).

On the system where you installed PRTG, please open the PRTG Server Administrator tool from the Windows start menu. In the Web Server tab, set the web server settings to use Port 80 and Localhost IP Leave the program with Ok and confirm (re-)start of Windows services.

Then open a browser on the same system (Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox) and open the URL You should now be able to access the PRTG web interface locally.
