win200 - lost root privilege - cannot shutdown - need help

Content-Type: text/plain;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

I am working on a Windows 2000 server.
The version 4.0.13 was installed at the end of June because we are looking
at using MySQL.

Me and the other guy are novice with MySQL.
I read the different emails about access and granting and password and
flushing privilege from other people who couldn't get access.

To get to the point, I know that the guy has altered the privileges and lost
the password he would have set for root.
mysqld was started from DOS window using mysqld and the window was closed.
When I go to Task Manager, I see the mysqld process running.

When I use now mysqld, if I try to specify root, because of not knowing the
root password, I can't get correct privilege to run the shutdown command.
If I just type mysql, I am user ODBC@localhost and the only database I see
is test. Since mysql database is not visible, I know that I cannot set
privilege from this user.

So my goal is to desinstall v4.0.13, and re-install v4.0.14.
But my current issue is "how do I stop the mysqld process?"
Even if stopping from Task Manager is not the best approach, do I have
another option?

Please help.
