When installing the MySQL 4.0.12 or .13 on Windows XP it crashes on next restart.

How to repeat:
 How to repeat it:

a) on a new fresh system I downloaded mysql zip file
b) extracted on the c:\windows\temp
c) executed the setup.exe and select all next (defaults)
d) run c:\mysql\bin\winmysqladmin
e) enter a username/password

it runs the mysql server without problems


a) reset the system

when windows starts it displayes the winmysqladmin form.
This form normally minimizes but it doesn't. MySQL crashes.
I request mysql service stop (by services console or command
line) but It doesn't respond. I try to run mysql.exe from
command line, it doesn't respond. No messages like (unable
to connect, no servers installed/running etc.). Nothing at all.
I can only kill the process with ctrl+alt+del

I found it on 4 windows xp systems with 4.0.13 and .12
One system has been formated and reinstalled everything from
the ground. The same problem.

Suggested fix:
Test MySQL on Windows XP

I did some tests on XP without to find the problem reported, however
seem to me that the behavior reported maybe is the effect of the
action from a firewall tool.
Can you verify in the advanced network properties if your firewall
is active taking a look in its log file for any events reported
and even nothing reported to make a test disabling the firewall.

This crash is still there. I installed essential pack and it crashed when connected with MySQL Query Browser. Tried also with firewall off. No effect.

This is Windows XP Professional with SP2
