You many use WAMP or XAMPP, both are almost the same. Maybe you would like to try Moodle Packages for Windows too, it's easier to apply.
1. WAMP/XAMPP+Moodle installation:
- Install WAMP or XAMPP
- Create a new empty database: http://localhost/phpMyadmin, collation: utf8_general_ci
- Unzip Moodle to www folder (WAMP), htdocs folder (XAMPP).
- Install Moodle: http://localhost/moodle/install.php, fill in the database name, username: root, password: (empty)
2. Moodle packages for windows: http://download.moodle.org/windows/
Just follow the screen instructions.

Which moodle do I need to download and install in WAMP? Window or XAMPP?
Usually there is a simple fix, but sometimes there is not. So start with the simplest:
In your text editor, not Notepad btw, but TextPad or Notepad++ both of which are freely downloadable, but Notepad++ is the right price, open the drive:\yourpathtomoodle\moodle\config.php file. Look for the line
$CFG->wwwroot = 'localhost';
Replace it with your network url so it reads something like:
$CFG->wwwroot = 'http://192.168.1.109/moodle';
Save and close it, then try it, this should work.
If not, then there is another reason, with a different solution.
