In response to your first question: Postgres creates the 'postgres' user
and the database 'template1' automatically after installation. You should
be able to execute this command to log in: psql -U postgres -d template1
After you have logged in, you can type: 'create database dbname;'
That will create a new database for you.
Sorry, but I can't help you with your second question.

Reinstalled software application to use newly created database, which
now works fine.
Database still runs.
I just can't login via pgAdmin anymore.
I get an error "fe_sendauth: no password supplied".
Previously it would give me an opertunity to enter the postgres user
password. Now it does not.
