How can I remove this?
Your config file (config.php) is currently world-writable. We strongly encourage you to change the permissions to 640 or at least to 644 (for example: chmod 640 config.php).
I'm using PHPBB locally using XAMPP on Windows.
Running chmod shows the following error:
'chmod' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
That warning is there for a web installation and isn't important on a localhost installation, UNLESS you allow access from outside (which you shouldn't allow at all unless you really know what you're doing).
Chmod isn't for Windows anyway: so nothing to worry about either but (as EA117 already mentioned, you could set it to read only - but strictly speaking it's not necessary).
