Ok guys i had the same problem. I've tried reinstalling and installing MySQL many times but it didn't help.

But finally i've solved this problem:
1) I'm using win XP - find folder which is called DATA and delete it (fe. c:/documents and settings/all users/application data/MySQL/MySQL 5.1/Data)

2) Uninstall your MySQL server and remove yuor install path folder

3) Install MySQL once again but when you are prompt to choose path for DATA files, change that path manually (create folder Datafiles in your installation path)

It should work:) Good luck.
