You really don't need to do a full installation unless you want to upgrade your current version.  If you're fine with this version, the easiest remedy is to reset the password properly.  See this link, and be sure to read through the whole article, as well the user comments.  They address the access denied issue you referenced:

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/resetting-permissions.html

If you're set on reinstalling, you still do not need to worry too much about a "full uninstall".  If you turn off the service, blow out the MySQL directory (bin, data, and whatever directory holds your cnf/ini files), reinstalling from the normal package to the same location should be just fine.  MySQL does not tend to leave odd things laying about, and if anything were left over, it would be overwritten by the new installation.
