Brilliant! I set Mysql service to manual, and it worked.

I guess you are using a Windows PC and this copy of MySql is set to startup automatically with all other services that your system starts at boot up. If I'm right, you should check in "Settings/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services" (this is the path if you are using Win XP home). There you will find this other copy of MySql listed and very likely its startup type set to automatic. Just double click on it and set it to manual. Then either stop the Mysql service by a command prompt (can't remember the command, but something like "mysql stop") or just restart the PC.Hope it helps

Suspicious message? There’s an alert for that.
