Unhappy HELP!! I just locked myself out of MySQL!! What an idiot ----------->


What an idiot I am..
I locked myself out of MySQL..

Being a noob with MySQL,
I thought I'd try and change the password for user 'root' in the user table of mysql database with an SQL command UPDATE..but I decided to change it back to default just in case I mess something up..

I restarted machine and now I can get back into MySQL..
DUH!!! HELP!!
