Open a Windows command line

Start | Run "cmd"

Now type
mysql -uroot -p
Enter root' s password when prompted. If you didn't set a root password, then just press enter.
You should now be connect as root. You can then create a new database

mysql>CREATE DATABASE my_new_db;

You should create a new user, with whatever privileges you require, to operate the database. Only use root to do maintenance tasks.

Good luck,
