I have been following the Windows Azure Express tutorial on the Microsoft website and everything has installed correctly. 

However, in one of the final steps, where one is supposed to enter https://localhost:30091/#Workspaces/WebSystemAdminExtension/quickStart into the web browser and be prompted for credentials, I get the following error message after clicking "Continue to this website (not recommended)" to the security certificate warning: The website declined to show this webpage HTTP 403 Most likely causes:This website requires you to log in.

 Could somebody please advise.

It doesn't, and I am already aware of this.

I have followed the instructions exactly and thus I am totally baffled.

Can anybody else offer any insight?
