Re: ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Well, I'm getting this message on the last check (Apply security settings)...

The Security setting could not be applied to the database because connection has failed with the following error.

Error Nr. 1045
Access denied for user 'root@localhost' (using password: YES)

If a personal firewall is running on your machine, please make sure you have opened the TCP port 3306 for connections. Otherwise no client application can connect to the server. After you have opened the port please press [Retry] to apply the security settings.

If you are re-installing after you just uninstalled the MySQL server please note that the data directory was not removed automatically. Therefore the old password from your last installation is still needed to connect to the server. In this case please select skip now and re-run the Configuration Wizard from the start menu.

I've tried cleaning my registry,removing old folders and cleaning ProgramData folder... I have ~400 MB free on C drive and I got Windows 7... If you have any suggestions, please help me...
