I gave up on 5.0 and installed 4.1 and I am up and running but I stumbled across this post deep in the forum. I bet this works but I dont want to mess with my installation anymore so I am not 100% sure: 

"Then I found the answer: one has to delete three files, all located in the mysql/data directory: 




Deleting these files means that the Windows config wizard recreates them and the server starts without a hitch. 

I also then restarted Windows after I reconfigured MySql just to make sure. 

Then run "MySQL Server Instance Config Wizard" again and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!"
