move the index.php file from htdocs folder to another folder not in the doc root for 1. as that is a redirect script to the xampp ADMIN directory.

dont delete it but move for safe keeping as you might need that file later as its a good redirect script.

for 2. windows doesn't work like linux, you can't chmod or whatever its called.


EDIT: Also do as the last post told you k m8 via
