just go into control panel and add/remove programs. the entire uninstall should work from there. youll have to make sure youre not running a standalone version of mysqld.exe though. if so, ctrl+alt+del end the program first, then proceed to remove it thru control panel.

thanks, but now i can\'t uninstall it because of an error with a file it can\'t find called \"C:MysqlUninstall.isu\" and says that uninstall cannot complete, and that isn\'t even the directory it is in.

did you try to manually delete all the files and folders first? if so, you\'re just going to have to continue removing it that way, even though it leaves very messy ends around.
