I've installed WAMP on a computer some months ago. Now I'm trying to use it and I was trying to surf the databases using phpMyAdmin. So I went to localhost/phpmyadmin and it showed me the databases.

The problem is: I can se all databases except for one that displays this error:

#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

My file has no password set. The weird thing about this is that when I get to the MySQL console (C:\wamp\bin\mysql\mysql5.5.20\bin\mysql) I can surf through the database without a problem.

Any suggestion on how I can see the database using phpMyAdmin?
