Always back up everything, if you are running for a while now with the default user name
its recomended that u do a fresh install, some nasty bots are out there.
then change all passwords ftp,mysql,apache
if you need the old data bases, you can find your password here C:\xampp\phpMyAdmin\config.inc.php
i am not sure but i think u need this one to config.inc.php.safe in the same directory.
