What did you before the crash? This is NOT a configuration "out of the box". It looks, as if you either have a file .htaccess in the htdocs folder (or in htdocs/xampp), which contains an invalid Authorization, or you edited the Apache configuration and entered similar invalid Authorization. You should remember, what you did before.

P.S.: As i found via Google, it looks as if you tried to install Wordpress into the xampp folder, that does not work due to insufficient rights. Did you install Wordpress?
