I am having intermittent logon issues with Server 2003.  The only error I can find in the event viewer alluding to what it could be is the following:

Event Type:      Warning
Event Source:      MySQL
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      100
Date:            11/22/2007
Time:            5:21:05 PM
User:            N/A
Computer:      SERVIDOR
Description:
mysql.user table is not updated to new password format; Disabling new password usage until mysql_fix_privilege_tables is run

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://www.mysql.com.  

I have tried looking for syntax to complete the task it is asking me to do and have not found it.  Can anyone describe the procedure for fixing this error?

Consequentially, I had Desktop Central software installed to evaluate.  the uninstall information is no longer there so i cannot uninstall this program.  I'm not sure if desktop central has anything to do with the mySQL error.

I don't see the similarity.  I guess what I am looking for is correct command line syntax to run mysql_fix_privilege_tables under windows server 2003.

okay, go to the Bin folder for MYSQL, and run in a command line:
I have used relative paths for datadir and basedir, and specified root as the user to authenticate with

mysql_upgrade --datadir=..\data --basedir=.. -u root -p
