Hello!
     This has really been a stupid mistake. You see, this is my first time to use mysql..something happened that made me delete all of the files from the mysql folder..turns out i couldn't delete bin\mysqld and F610-33.err, ib_logfile0, ibdata1 and innodb.status2896 which are all from mysql\data..now that i want to install mysql again, i get this error during the setup -- An error occurred during the move data process: -103 Component: Servers
     'hope u can help me out with this...

It sounds like the server is still running.  Make sure the server is stopped (check Task Manager if you are using Windows) and try reinstalling again.
