So far I've tried a couple of things. I know I have had MySQL installed somewhere else besides XAMPP so I uninstalled it. And when I went to the Windows Event Viewer, I found this message here.
Can't find messagefile 'C:\xampp\mysql\share\errmsg.sys'
And I know that before that I was having a problem with the root password. I didn't remember it, and none of the methods I have tried to reset it have worked. I don't know if that's still an issue even if I uninstalled that other MySQL Server. But in case it is, I'm gonna put it out there right now that I'm using Windows 10.
