MySQL daemon

In the Task Manager (for Win XP) I see the MySQL daemon (mysqld-nt.exe),
But when I attempt to stop it from the command line:
>net stop mysql
I get this message:
The MySQL service is not started.

Can someone explain?

that means that the MySQL has been started manually, and NOT via a service.

I didn't start this, it happened on startup.
How do I get this -not- to start on startup?
allelopathAuthor Commented:
This is how to shut it down:
"C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin\mysqladmin" -u root shutdown
but still would like to know how to prevent it from starting automagically.

check out the mysql startup options, you can set it somewhere, I don't remember the form, though.
in the mySQL menu in Start -> Programs -> MySQL there is a configuration tool, as far as I remember.
allelopathAuthor Commented:
That gives you the option of starting it as a service (or not).
Go Run: services.msc and looking for the service contains MySQL, if the Startup Type is Automatic, that's means the MySQL service is installed and auto-start, just double click on the service, choose Manual for Startup Type then Apply -> Ok. Since this time, the service is manual start only

also you can try checking with msconfig if mysql daemon is setup on startup. to use it type msconfig in start->run.
