1. First change your admin password to something more secure.
2.Then implement a security policy.
3. After that you can add a new account with only  limited permissions for running applications.
4. setup and configure your firewall.

You can install  wamp, xampp or anything similar and then get the setting file production php.ini, and run MySQL secure script. You can also use IIS and install mysql and php using the webinstaller app.
