Something has happened to the MySQL server installation on my computer. Normally, the MySQL notifier program, which is supposed to start automatically and run in the system tray has stopped starting up automatically, and instead throws these two errors in order of appearance below. When I try so start it on my own, these two errors are thrown again. How can I resolve this issue without losing my data and if possible, my configuration settings as well? I do not care if I have to reinstall MySQL as long as I can at the very least retain my data.
