404 means page not found, so the server is running. the page you're asking for is just not available. what is offline is probably the associated alias or your wamp configure virtual hosts and "localhost" is not among them

Doesn't mean the Wamp is running....

it does not mean that mysql is running or php working in any way but it does mean that apache is. apache is the one saying "resource not found"
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

The result pid after executing the following command:
netstat -o -n -a | findstr 0.0:8443 is 1700

Task mgr shows wampapache as the program using that pid.

But wampserver still shows 404 when clicking on localhost.

obviously. you'd never get a 404 if apache was not running. you're just asking for a page that does not exist. you can have a full debug in the log but you most likely either typed something weird in the address bar, or have an issue with aliases or vhosts. not knowing the content of your address bar or apache's config, it is difficult to help. if you still can't figure it out, please provide the required info
