Open phpMyAdmin from your WAMP icon.
Click on [Privileges].
Click the "Edit" Icon for Root (far right end - pencil icon)
Scroll down to "Change Password"
Enter your desired Root password
Click in the [GO] box.

Your Root access for MySQL is now passworded.
Note that now phpMyAdmin does not know how to access your MySQL server.

Go to c:\wamp\myphpadmin\

Find the line $cfg['Servers']['$i']['Password'] = ''

Enter your Root Password in between the last two quotes.

You should now have $cfg['Servers']['$i']['Password'] = 'yourpassword'

Save the file.

Now phpMyAdmin should let you back in to MySQL
