this isn't a paid support company, but a mail group for users and 
developers of TeXLive. So please do not expect to obtain detailed 
schooling instructions.
At least you have managed to get TeXLive installed. There isn't a single 
file installed, but a directory containing many subdirectories and files.
In order to learn to use the program, you should visit the page, where you will find many useful links, 
especially You will have to dig into these.
I guess, it would help to find some local expert, who will explain the 
basic issues.
Just a short hint: Together with TeXLive you might have installed  the 
TeXworks editor, which serves as front end to the TeX system. You can 
use that to write your text and have it processed to e.g. a pdf document.
Good luck
