Cannot access MySQL database on Windows PC

I have installed MySQL database(mysql-5.6.10-winx64) on my Windows 7 PC. When I try to start/run the MySQL database I get error:

ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10060).

I have attached the screenshots. Could you please help me fix the issue. Thanks a lot.

You should post this on a MySQL list instead of an MS Access list.

Check first to see if the 'mysqld' or 'mysqld-nt.exe' service is running in Task Manager.  If it is then you probably need to use a login to access the MySQL server.

Thank you. I looked at the task manager and found that the mysqld is running. I attached the screen.

How do I login to the MySQL server... ? Thank you.

Also if I right-click on the Local instance section in the MySQL workbench, and click "start command line client", it asks for password. Is there any general password at the beginning? I type in some password and after a while the black/white window disappears.

When first installed, 'root', the user shown in your screen shot, does not have a password.  Just press Enter on that screen.  It is recommended that you create one but that can wait until you have things running.

I'm not sure why you are starting the Command line client.
