You can create an .htaccess file and put:
php_flag register_globals off
XAMPP will still run, but if you have code that requires them to be on, you would definitely break that code. It is considered insecure to code a PHP script using register_globals turned on. Go an turn them off and see if your stuff still works. If not, turn it back on. If you change php.ini you have to restart Apache (TTBOMK) which is why it is often easier to use a .htaccess file.
