How to reset MySQL root password?

I desperately need some help here. I have lost my root password and I am unable to login in. Every time on the CL prompt I am asked for a password and I obviuosly can't get through. I also tried removing the MySQL, manually deleting the entire directory, reg entries and every time I re-install it asks for the same password again and again that I unfortunately don't remember.

Even while configuring the MySQL server it keeps on referring to "Modify Root Password" with prompting for the older password.

I am a beginner at this and would appreciate some help.

Thanks a bunch in advance,
