The problem is that MySQL uses TCP/IP to communicate between the
server and client. The default Microsoft setup, when you have installed 
automatic dialup, always calls the Internet even if you only connect to 
'localhost'.  The fix is to remove the automatic dialup or don't click 
'accept' when windows ask for connecting to the Internet.

The above is described in the MySQL manual.  To keep things secure
MySQL doesn't allow you to create a new database if you are not
granted the right to do this.

If you don't want any restrictions, start mysql as:

mysql -u root

and you can do anything.
