MySQL Application is a piece of shit application to install on Windows 10, it never installs and hangs

Installing MySQL 5.5 on Windows 10 is a pain in the ass as the Server Instance hangs and never installs, hangs and generates stupid errors like error0, port 3306 is being used, service cannot start and others. Is it windows issue or MySQL issue and how do I correct or go around it

SOS on MYSQL installation!

>>port 3306 is being used
Means MySQL (or another application that uses that port) is already running.

Uninstall MySQL, delete preference files then reinstall.
