Why such an ancient version? Rapid improvements have been made in
PostgreSQL's Windows support, and you'll have much better results with
8.4 or even 8.3 .

Typically you'll want to create a service account for PostgreSQL, then
add a service that runs the postmaster via pg_ctl.exe under the new
service account.

If you're not comfortable doing that, perhaps you should be using the
binary installer for a recent version?
