On exit from MySQL Administrator, a file called "mysqladmin_options.xml" is written to your desktop (if you have the shortcut on your desktop).

This file contains 

  <?xml version="1.0" ?> 
- <application_options>
- <group name="General">
  <property name="LastFileDialogPaths" value="" /> 
- <group name="GUISetup">
  <property name="SectionSidebarWidth" value="185" /> 
  <property name="SectionSidebarHidden" value="0" /> 
- <group name="AdminUserManagement">
  <property name="ShowUserGlobalPrivileges" value="0" /> 
  <property name="ShowUserTableColumnPrivileges" value="0" /> 
- <group name="AdminHealthGraphs">
  <property name="UsePeakLevel" value="1" /> 
  <property name="ResetPeakLevel" value="1" /> 
  <property name="PeakLevelResetTicks" value="30" /> 
- <group name="AdminBackups">
  <property name="AddDateTimeToBackupFiles" value="1" /> 
  <property name="WriteBackupLog" value="0" /> 
  <property name="BackupLogDir" value="C:\" /> 
  <property name="BackupLogEntryAfterRows" value="0" /> 
- <group name="WindowPos">
  <property name="MainForm" value="x=236; y=115; w=900; h=720; s=0; m=0" /> 

How to repeat:
Open MySQL Administrator
Log-on to a MySQL profile / server
Change a setting / Exit MySQL Administrator

Suggested fix:
If MySQL Administrator can't store these settings in the registry, the program should put the xml file in the installation directory.
