Re: Password reset

I think I've solved part of my problem but now have a new one. My original problem was caused by not being logged in as Administrator. I thought I was.

The reset techniques now get a little further along but never returns. Here's what I'm doing:

c:>"C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\bin\mysqld.exe" --defaults file="C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\my
.ini" --init-file=C:\mysql-init.txt

mysql-init.txt has the following commands:
UPDATE mysql.user SET Password=PASSWORD('Targus1954') WHERE User='root';

When I execute this command, the prompt never comes back, it just hangs and my MySql service won't start now.

I could sure use some help with this one.

Thanks in advance...
