But you said that it failed to apply security settings. This means the root password you specified in the installer didn't get applied.

I suspect that the previous instance of MySQL was still running when you tried to install the new instance. You should check this with a query like "SELECT VERSION();". Does it return the version you just installed, or the previous version?

Generally trying to install MySQL while a previous MySQL server is still running causes all sorts of unclear errors. The best bet is to shut down the previous MySQL server ("C:\> sc stop MySQL") and maybe even uninstall it. Then install the new software. Even then some people have troubles until they delete the old config and log files from the previous server.
