I´m going out of my mind trying to install MySQL 5.5.9 for the second time.

History:

1. Remove installation from "Add/remove programs"
2. Delete DB-files location
3. Delete installation path ...program files/MySQL with my.ini file
4. stop service manually
5. delete service from console.
6. reboot
7. install fresh mysql 5.5.9 = hangs when trying to start service..??

Please help me :)
