I have tried all the fixes with no luck.  I am using 5.1 server.  I have installed and uninstalled so many times.

And the my.ini reads something like:

[mysqld]
# set basedir to your installation path
basedir=E:/mysql
# set datadir to the location of your data directory
datadir=E:/mysql/data

Yes.  MySQL service is set as a local account.  Still receiving error 1067.

I found that mysql puts a folder in documents and settings.  Deleted the folder, reinstalled and everything worked great.
