mysql 5.7 service is not starting

I have a windows server 2012 R2

I have MYSQL 5.7.30 installed

The security software lapsed due to a misconfiguration on cisco's website. So in order to stop the sql injection attacks I went into my.ini and uncommented the
skip networking line.

Cisco fixed the security software issue, so I went into my.ini and commented out the skip networking line.

I rebooted the server and the my sql service does not start. I went into the environmental variables and seen that the mysql path was set to 5.5 vice 5.7. I corrected that and ensure the path was correct and rebooted the server.

The service would not start. I have a copy of 5.7 on the server and tried a reinstall with no success. Mysql service hangs.

I decided to remove the service by sc delete mysql57 and it removed the service.

I made a copy of the Data files in a safe location

Is it possible to recover all of this without a complete reinstall? If a complete reinstall is necessary, can the data files be used to recover the databases?

I do nightly backups of the server, so that option is available, but if there is a quicker fix, I would appreciate any knowledge.

Thanks !
