Wampserver: Access Denied

I've installed Wampserver to my local comp and when I try to log in to phpMyAdmin, I get an "access denied" error saying that "access is denied for root @ localhost " (using password:NO) .  Any ideas?

Is that an error from apache or from phpMyAdmin? It looks like a problem of phpMyAdmin/configuration because "denied for root @ localhost " (using password:NO)" is not a common message from apache.

How are your MySQL settings? May be a password is required to access them via mysql user 'root'?

your mysql is not configured to allow login as root from localhost, or you provided the wrong password for user root in mysql
