MYSQL Setup error

I installed MYSQL and get the following error:
Could not start the MYSQL service on Local Computer.
Error 1067 the process terminated unexpectedly.  

I searched online and tried every solution I found still with no luck.  Uninstalling, removing registry keys.

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

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