I am Alex,

I have a problem with windows registry... how?? i'll tell you how i managed how to make them not to work.

Long time ago, i have installed MySQL for a game server, but i forgot the password i've seted on database.
Last week i decided to reinstall MySQL and Navicat for MySQL... but i couldn't create a database and i got manny errors abot password and incorect password. i searched on google and i've found a crap forum where an "computer expert" <_< gave me an easy solution... that to unninstall MySQL and delete MySQL from registry. i did like this:
- after i unninstalled, I gone in Start/Run/Regedit/HKET_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services => here i found MySQL folder and i deleted, without backup. Since than, after i reinstall it, i cant run MySQLInstanceConfig till the end... (i mean i run it, and when i press Execute or Install he will load about 60% and then "Not Responding")
I am not an expert but I think this is because i deleted MySQL from registry... or not?? :bashhead:

There is something i can do to make MySQL database work, without reinstalling windows??
Pls HELP! :help:

Thank you verry much and pls excuse my bad english :D

Have you tried a simple SFC to see if the file can be repaired or replaced?
