Stop the MySQL server if it is running. For a server that is running as a Windows service, go to the Services manager:

Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services

Then find the MySQL service in the list, and stop it. If your server is not running as a service, you may need to use the Task Manager to force it to stop.

Create a text file and place the following statements in it. Replace the password with the password that you want to use.

UPDATE mysql.user SET Password=PASSWORD('MyNewPass') WHERE User='root';FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

The UPDATE and FLUSH statements each must be written on a single line.

Save the file named C:\mysql-init.txt

Run Command Line by

Start Menu -> Run -> cmd

Start the MySQL server with the special --init-file option:

C:\> C:\mysql\bin\mysqld-nt --init-file = C:\mysql-init.txt
Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services

Find the MySQL service in the list, right-click on it, and choose the Properties option. The Path to executable field contains the --defaults-file setting.
After the server has started successfully, delete C:\mysql-init.txt.
Stop the MySQL server, then restart it in normal mode again. I hope it will help
