I have a similar problem on my Windows 8 machine. MySQL works until I restart the computer. Following a restart the MySQL command line crashes after entering the password and opening a connection in the workbench results in a "Can't connect to mysql server on ' (10061)'" error.

re-installing the MySQL server (5.6.12) temporarily fixes the problem until, of course, I restart the computer.

I have not found the below link to be very helpful as it is too technical:
