When you set the MySQL process owner to Network Service, you shouls ensure that Network Service has full permissions on the MySQL Data folder.
Open Windows Explorer. Navigate to the MySQL Data folder. Default is

C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\Data

Your system could be different.

Right click on the folder.

Select Security tab.

NETWORK SERVICE should be listed in the Group or user names box
Click on it. See that it has Full Control.

If NETWORK SERVICE isn't listed, then add it with the Edit button. Add, and add Network Service user. Then add Allow Full control.

That will guarantee that MySQL will start, owned by Network Service, and will have full access to its Data folder.

Good luck,
