You can disable things in the top nav by adding this to your mysite/_config.php

Object::addStaticVars('LeftAndMain', array(
   'removed_menu_items' => array(

To edit the footer you will need to modify the file at cms/templates/

maybe you have installed SilverStripe with the tutorial option? If so, the _config.php path should be tutorial/_config.php

What did you install? Did you install SilverStripe using the "Empty Template - ready for the tutorial" option or the "Blackcandy" option, for the site to be working then there must be a _config.php file in mysite/ or tutorial/

Just to test can you see a _config.php file in the cms/ or sapphire folders? Maybe your user doesnt have rights to view files beginning with a _
