Help!

I installed Wamp on my new Win 7 desktop. After I installed and tweaked Wordpress, I decided to set a root password. Guess what? I could never get anything to work again.

No sweat. I decided to simply uninstall, delete the folders, and install again. Doesn't work. When I try to reinstall, I'm informed that I already have Wamp.

I poked around the web and saw two solutions that I did not like: 1) system restore, and 2) go to regedit and search and delete every entry with "wamp" in it.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
Rosemary

Uninstall Wamp and delete the wamp folder that is leftover. (C:/wamp). Now reinstall.

Looking for something I haven't tried yet, but thanks anyway, c2dan.

Try restarting windows. Otherwise you'll have to edit your registery and delete all entries for 'wamp'.

you should uninstall both wamp and firewall/antivirus, remove wamp folder, run regedit to search and delete 2 instances wampapache and wampmysql, restart pc, reinstall wamp, then reinstall firewall/antivirus while wamp is running
