First off, I'm kinda new to MySQL, but I'm using the MySQL Administrator GUI client to create both a new database and a user with full access permissions to the database.

Now, I've created this new user and assigned a password using MySQL administrator. I've applied and saved the changes. Now, when I go to log into MySQL with the new user info, I get the following error message:

"Could not connect to the specified instance.

MySQL Error Number 1045
Access denied for user 'newuser@localhost' (Using password: YES)"

Anyone know what's up with this? I know there has to be a step I'm missing.
