mysql on localhost (where is it and how to run)

I uninstalled wamp on localhost windows 7

I am not sure what mysql I was running because I previously had
php/apache/mysql (php zend framework)
wamp
xampp

now I open mysql workbench and I see no databases, says not connected

How can I run mysql again
did I lose all my localhost data (I have no backups)

When you uninstall it asks if you want to remove the htdocs folder and the MySQL data - if you said Yes you're screwed.
Unless you have a recovery program that may be able to restore the data.
Or you have Recovery enabled and you may be able to restore to a previous version
Or try System Restore if it is enabled for the drive.
