    OK what the devil is going on???? I go to C:\mysql\bin and double click mysql then the command prompt type screen comes up, my computer beeps, then the screen disappears. So I go to Command Prompt and type: C:\mysql\bin\mysql and it comes up:

    "Error 1130: Host 'localhost' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server"

    Why????????? I cannot do any MySQL work until I find out how to rectify this. I have tried to explain as best I can and I hope you understand. Anyone who knows how I can solve this, please help me!!!!!!!

    Log in with the proper credentials (by default, "root" with no password).

    I don't know about the Windows version, but if it has the same argument syntax as the Unix version:

    C:\mysql\bin\mysql -u root

    Did you run the mysql_install_db script after installing MySQL?
    Have you tried starting the MySQL server with --skip-grant-tables, to override host and user permissions?

    You should read the documentation before posting questions...all of what is posted so far is listed in there. You do understand that MySQL uses user accounts for authentication, yes?

    Yes I understand that. Like people have passwords to be able to delete tables and databases e.t.c? Is that what you mean?
