And the my.ini reads something like:

# set basedir to your installation path
# set datadir to the location of your data directory

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.
