Uninstalll/reinstall is fine for smartphones, it's only a very last resort for database servers like MySQL.

Uninstall/reinstall very likely created a new set of problems. Was there data you wished to keep? Are there backups of that data?

If not, bring down the server, move ib_logfile* and ibdata* from the data folder to a safe backup location, restart the server, then examine the error log.

Note you can't solve this problem from WB alone, eg you will need to use text editors to edit my.ini, and the mysql client program to test connectability.
