Mysql Query Browser and Mysql Administrator Issue

I created a "full" backup job through MySql Administrator, and it ran fine from the GUI. Then I monitored the scheduled task it created, and the job failed. I tried fixing the schedule task by creating a new connection instance, but then noticed that I can't access MySql Query Browser or Administrator anymore. I tried re-installing both applications with no luck. The tricky part is that are no clues to why I can't access Query Browser or Administrator. The root login takes, but there's no displayed data in either GUI. The only clue I had was from the failing backups:

Faulting application MySQLAdministrator.exe, version, faulting module libmysqladmin.dll, version, fault address 0x00005d00.

I spent a TON of time on Google, and no I'm completely lost on how to troubleshoot/fix this issue of getting Query Browser and Administrator back.

Thanks in advance for your help. If I missed any information, please ask. Also, please do not add comments that do not offer a solution to this specific problem (ie. both apps are EOL, or why don't I upgrade to MySql 5).

Perhaps you could try using MySQL Workbench, which is a single interface which now includes all the GUI Tools.

That product only support mysql 5 and above which I'm not prepared to upgrade to yet. Thanks.

Question: Is the MySQL server working properly? Is your data in there? If you are only having problems with the client programs why not just install them on a different machine and access your server remotely?

Again, wasn't looking for alternate solutions but rather to fix the problem. Even though the mysql server was working properly, somehow creating a backup through the admin gui broke the tools. I ended up exporting the mysql user table through command line. Removing all instances of mysql (including the server) and re-installing the entire system. Everything is now working. If was a little tricky to bring back in the mysql db and involved create a "mysql_old" db. Then, I just stopped the new install and changed "mysql_old" to "mysql". I appreciate your input.

I had to provide my own solution as this was not solved by anyone else. I explicitly put in the new post that I wanted a FIX, not alternate solutions.
