I think I broke mysql - Take a look...

[Using Windows 2003 Server]

I recently *accidentally* ran the file xampp_restart.exe (or was it start, or stop... one of those three).

I didn't catch what the console output was because the console closed too fast, however now mysql will not start on my computer. When I try to start it using the control panel, it goes back to the "Stopped" state. If I run it through the Services manager, I get:

Code: Select all
A system error has occurred.

System error 1067 has occurred.

The process terminated unexpectedly.

In the .err file, mysql outputs this:

Code: Select all
050302 13:49:24 [ERROR] Fatal error: Can't open privilege tables: Table 'mysql.host' doesn't exist

I've looked around the internet for solutions to this problem, but so far nothing has worked. I really don't want to lose the information in the databases that I already have stored. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? How could this have happened simply by running the stop/start/restart file?
