Two possible solutions:

(1) Try removing your settings.config file, and restart Notifier. This file lives in your your home directory under AppData\Roaming\Oracle\MySQL Notifier\.

(2) If that does not work, then check if you have a lingering MySQL service that was not removed during a previous uninstallation. To check:

- View the list of services on your system
- Locate MySQL services, likely ones that begin with "MySQL"
- If old services exist here from previous installations then they should be removed as they cannot be started/stopped
- Do NOT remove working services, if you're unsure then it's ability to start/stop will help

To remove a service, note the name from the above list (we'll use ServiceNameHere but it's likely closer to MySQL51) and from the command line execute the following for each broken service:

sc delete ServiceNameHere

That removes the service, and hopefully this will solve the problem... start Notifier to find out.
