How is your Apache configured? Did you any changes to the original httpd.conf or another configuration file of the Apache?

Absolute: AuthUserfile "/xampp/htdocs/forbidden/.htpasswd"
Relative: AuthUserfile "./.htpasswd"

here are a couple of ways to generate a .htpasswd file:
Open a command console in C:\xampp\apache\bin
At the command prompt type htpasswd.exe
Follow the instructions especially the part about Windows and the m switch.
Easier if you like is to use an online Generator and here is but one of many:

When you have a valid .htpasswd file just replace your own and follow the paths Glitz outlined - but I did read that a full path including the drive letter should be used.
