Windows server 2003 won't start mysql

view story

http://serverfault.com – For serveral days I have been trying for windows to start mysql. I have no problems installing it as a service but ont >net start mysql it won't start. i can start mysql from command line using >mysqld --defaults-file="c:\mysql\my.ini" the problems is that for some reason IIS does not run well doing it this way and the server freezes. It was running fine until I made some changes to the my.ini file. I've reverted them but didn't help. I did a fresh install of mysql, removing all registries, and files form the applicationdata folder. I don't know what else to try. any ideas would be appreciat (HowTos)
