You purposefully cut out the important part of your log - that's why you preface you are running as administrator. Understand that running on administrator account is not the same as running a program with admin privileges. You must right click and run as admin for the program to have privileges to manipulate services.

Additionally, it looks like you already installed mysql in program files directory.
