Installing Oracle 11g on windows 7

I am new to Oracle and a novice. I downloaded oracle 11g from Oracle for Oracle web site and installed. When i try to run Oracle I get a prompt to enter a user name and a password or i get a DOS screen!
There was no prompt when installing Oracle to ask for a user name and password. I feel lost. I tried to read Oracle documentations on the net but they are as clear as mud.
Help needed to make sense of installing and running Oarcle. Why cannot oracle make database work as easily as SQLSERVER?
