if there is no (dot)htaccess files then you could make sure the individual components of the WAMPServer no longer exist. found this on net, hope it helps...
Shut down WAMP using the tray icon. Right Click and select EXIT
- Start->Control Panel->Add/ Remove Programs. Select WAMP and remove it. After removal MOST of the WAMP files will remain.
- Delete c:\WAMP
- Start->Run. Enter: 'Regedit' and hit return. This opens the registry editor. The registry stores data used by programs and the OS. You can really mess up your system if you don't know what your doing so be VERY careful. Use FIND to locate all entries with WAMP in them. Using 'F3' find each one, make sure its related to WAMP and delete it. Remember BE CAREFUL and create a RESTORE disk before you start.
- Then Delete these two directories c:\temp, c:\windows\temp
- Then FINALY ((and I think this is the one that really does it)) there is an oddly name DB file saved on c:\ Sadlly I didn't write it down.... but it should stand out... its a mix of letters and I think WMP or ODB was in it... delete that too ((back it up just in case))
Now restart your computer and reinstall WAMP!
Setting the ROOT Password
- Start WAMP
- Access phpMyAdmin
- Select 'Privileges'
- You will see a list of users. Click the 'Edit Privileges' icon at the right end of the root user, localhost.
- Scroll down to the Change Password section. enter your password twice then click GO.
- Now exit WAMP and shut it down.
- In your text editor open c:\WAMP\APPS\phpmyadmin2.11.6\config.inc...
- In this file find: $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'config';
- Change it to: $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie';
- Find: $cfg['blowfish_secret'] = '';
- Change it to: $cfg['blowfish_secret'] = 'WhatEverYouWantHere';
- Save it
- Open c:\WAMP\APPS\phpmyadmin2.11.6\index.php
- Insert this line after the <?php tag: include_once 'config.inc.php';
- Save it
