    You must have forgotten when you asked the same thing about three months ago -

    You forgot your password! MySql saves passwords using a one way encryption hash. There is no way to get it to tell you what it is.

    You have two choices -

    1) Try various passwords until you find the one that works.

    2) Use the MySQL Server Instance Config Wizard to remove the current instance and then create a new one.
    I recommend you write it down and put it some place safe.
