MySQL installation and error in MySQL administrator

I have unsuccessfully tryed to install MySQL Server 5.5.9 for windows on a totally fresh VMWare windows 2003 R2 full updated server.
It crashes every time and I have not been able to find any help on the WEB.

So now I´m trying to go for the MySQL Server 5.1.56 essentials for windows.

I´ve installed it with success, but now I keep getting this error when launching MySQL administrator:

Access violation at address 0042A8FE in module 'MySQLAdministrator.exe'. Read of address 00000004?

Also after setting privlidges to a to a new user on a new catalog. Next time I open MySQL administrator the privlidges on the catalog is gone and there arent any new ones to set?

for some reason it can now keep my privileges for a user and a catalog.
I can use the server for now but i´m still worried about the "Access violation error"?

First -

I would recommend using VMware snapshots before and after you are making config changes to an OS.. You can get more value out of the virtual enviroment that way- you can roll back changes really easy.

Have you checked the memory of the vmware host?  Are there other virtual machines on the same host?  What is the vmware environment, workstation, server, esxi, esx?

Do you have an antivirus on the virtual guest?

It is a hosted server by our hosting partner so i´m not able to take snapshots.
I gues there is a lot of VM´s on the same host, but cant know for sure..

The server runs on VMWare ESX 4.
It has 4 GB ram.

It had Panda Antivirus witch has been uninstalled because of this issue.
