You should not have needed to grant any user permissions and I have installed XAMPP loads of times without a problem.
If you want to setup a user you can use the XAMPP interface or edit the password file.
Have you started Apache and MySQL from the XAMPP control panel?
From memory the standard user is Root without a password

I recently installed XAMPP and had problems getting everything running from the XAMPP control panel until I right-clicked on some file (I think it was xampp-control.exe) and chose to run as administrator. After I did that everything worked fine. There is no MySQL password on the default installation of XAMPP. Once everything is running you can access MySQL using phpMyAdmin without concern about credentials.
