Doesn't use CPU or disk, just stuck. And even after killing it with task manager and removing the character-set-server=utf8 line from my.ini, the same thing happens. Once this change is made, it always gets stuck starting, and I have not found a fix. I tried uninstalling / reinstalling MySQL, and the same thing happened.
