Do you have the GUI MySQL Administrator? If not download it.

Log in to the Administrator. On the left side choose startup variables. Then on the right side at the top choose the security tab. Click on 'Use old qasswords'. Then restart your MySQL Instance. You may also need to create another database...

Hope this helps.
