MySQL Workbench - Access denied for user @ localhost

First time user...Really sorry for the novice question but I am stuck.

Just installed MySQL Workbench and have never used it before, followed instructions to the letter and I did have to try to install it several times as the install kept failing at the download section. I have pretty decent internet generally so I don't know why that was happening.

Once I did make it through the install and I tried to connect, this is this error I get:

Cannot Connect to Database Server
Your connection attempt failed for user 'root' to the MySQL server at 127.0.0.2:3306

Access denied for user 'root'@localhost' (using password:YES)

1. Check that MySQL is running on address 127.0.0.1
// How do I verify that? It is set to default and I did the default install without changing any of the settings.

2. Check that MySQL is reachable on port 3306
// How do I verify that? It is set to default and I did the default install without changing any of the settings.

3. Check the user root has the right to connect to 127.0.0.1 from your address
// It's my personal computer and I do have admin rights


4. Make sure you are both providing a password and using the correct password for 127.0.0.1 connecting from host address you're connecting from
// I have provided the password and it is accepted- how do I verify the rest?

Any help would be much appreciated.
