  Subject: [NOVICE] Installing Problem: User Account Exists

  I am attempting to install postgres on my windows XP box and get an error message stating that the postgres user already exists.  I had postgres installed a couple of years ago; perhaps I did not remove it correctly?

  What do I need to do in order to get postgres back on my computer?  I'm looking forward to playing with some Python routines (SQLAlchemy and Dab. in particular).

  Thanks for your help,
