Hello, you will want to download the Windows binary for MariaDB (this is the preferred MySQL-like database server for many people.)

then you can follow a guide online for securing your database and setting up a user account.
(The root account should be disabled, the database should be bound to localhost only, etc.)
https://www.tutorialspoint.com/mariadb/mariadb_installation.htm

The most important security thing you should do is 100% disable the default root account and make the database server only accessible by your machine (or your local network if your server isn't on the same machine.)
