a way to copy and paste the errors I am receiving up here. Is there a way to paste code in this message box?

Ordinary copy & paste. To preserve text formatting, use BBCode tags.

Unfortunately this is Windows, so much in may be difficult to apply, but you need to scan it for anything that looks relevant.

Immediately ... copy the entire datadir as is to a backup location so you have a base case to return to in case repair attempts go sideways. Check my.ini for innodb_data_file_path and innodb_data_home_dir settings outside <datadir>; if they're present, you need to copy those locations too.

Now, backup copies in place, since the crash reports says "Log scan progressed past the checkpoint ...", delete ib_logfile* and try your console start cmd again so InnoDB can rebuild those logs, and let's see what MySQL says.

Finally, why aren't we seeing what the mysql error log reports for the time just before, and at the time when, these crashes first occurred? The error log is named <machinename>.log in C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\data. There should be stacktraces there of the original problem.
