"Unknown Database" mySql not storing databases properly

"Unknown Database" mySql not storing databases properly

"Unknown Database" mySql not storing databases properly

    So here's an odd one:  I load up mySql and I get my normal list of Databases, sometimes.  Sometimes I get a list of one database: "Data" wich has no table entries.  I think this is a refrence to the "data" directory where mySql stores databases.

    Sometimes I don't get the list of databases or the false "data" database.  Sometimes I get the contents of my Windows/System directory as if every sub directory in windows/system was a database!

    The list of Databases will also change from one of these three lists to another of these three lists at apparently random times.

    I'm using mySqlAdmin v1 on top of 3.23.  I haven't done anything weird to it, other than delete it and re-install.

Does anyone have any idea wtf is going on?
