I have tried everything on this discussion.
None of the suggestions work. This is the first install of MySQL for me.

1) Deactivated the firewall.
2) MySQL is running as a service - mysql-nt.exe, this has been double checked
3) I correctly set root username and password during the install wizard.
4) Use the command prompt entering the username and password set during the install.
5) Attempted unsuccessfully to change the password.

There seems to be no way to get access mysql.exe or mysqladmin.exe
This is very furstrating should I simply re-install the MySQL?

I almost want to quit before I start.
