Could you post the Xampp and the Web Matrix settings that are being used.
Normally MySQL Server uses port 3306 and uses my.ini or my.cnf for settings.
You may find that Xampp has put the settings in the Windows folder and the Xampp install location.
You may find that Xampp has installed another WIndows Service for MySQL Server.
If you check there are likely be two MySQL Services.

If your trying to remove Xampp all the services 'Apache', 'MySQL Server', 'FileZilla' , 'Mecury Mail'
must be stopped before Xampp it can be removed.
The picture you have shows that the MySQL Server from Xampp is using port 3306.
Use the Xampp Tray to stop the MySQL Server from Running.
After the MySQL Server has stopped use the Xampp Tray Admin to change the MySQL Server to use port 3308.
Then start the MySQL Server for Web Matrix and see if you can access your database.

For running and configuration of Xampp check the guide for "Windows" at 'Apache Friends'.
They have pictures and descriptions for Admin and Tray operations.
The MySQL Server for Web Matrix should be located
in C:\Program Files\MySQL Server 5.xx or C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL Server 5.xx
depending on the windows your using and MySQL Server version. There should be a Windows Service for Web Matrix.
If the Windows Service is missing or the folders are missing you may need to check Control Panel Add and Remove
programs and for MySQL Server install. If the MySQL Server is missing you may need to re-install.
