MySQL on localhost

I'm trying to connect TOAD to my localhost MySQL default database on Windows 7 x64 box, but I'm getting "Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)". I can run mysqlshow correctly, and I see the "MySQL" service running in the task manager. Any reason why it's not starting? The output from mysqld --console is...

C:\Windows\system32>mysqld --console
100410 23:24:44 [Warning] '--default-character-set' is deprecated and will be re
moved in a future release. Please use '--character-set-server' instead.

100410 23:24:44 [Note] mysqld: ready for connections.
Version: '5.1.45-community' socket: '' port: 0 MySQL Community Server (GPL)

Does anything look wrong? Should I be connecting via named pipe since it's local rather than TCP?
