MySQL Service wont start (FIX!!!)

I gave up on 5.0 and installed 4.1 and I am up and running but I stumbled across this post deep in the forum. I bet this works but I dont want to mess with my installation anymore so I am not 100% sure:

"Then I found the answer: one has to delete three files, all located in the mysql/data directory:




Deleting these files means that the Windows config wizard recreates them and the server starts without a hitch.

I also then restarted Windows after I reconfigured MySql just to make sure.

Then run "MySQL Server Instance Config Wizard" again and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!"
