This isn't really a coding question, but here goes anyway.
I recently installed MySQL+php+drupal on my laptop for some learning&testing. The problem is, I can't recall what I used for the root password for the MySQL setup... I tried deleting MySQL along with any leftover folders and reinstalling, but that doesn't seem to work. I also followed the method for resetting database password on the MySQL forums but it doesn't seem to work for some reason.
The simplest way should be just deleting the whole thing and reinstalling from scratch right? Can anyone tell a foolproof way of doing that?
I'm running 32bit win vista.

You could also try a package like XAMPP that will install Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl, phpMyAdmin, and other stuff. It's got everything you need. I've never used it, but people recommend it highly on webmaster forums.
