Bug reference:      4581
Logged by:          Henrik Svensson

PostgreSQL version: 8.3.1
Operating system:   Windows XP SP2
Description:        Difficult uninstall
Details: 

To remove PostgreSQL so you can reinstall it to my findings the following
must be done:
- Do "Control Panel" "Add Remove Programs" select "PostgreSQL 8.3" click
"Remove". That's normal.
- Delete all files (still remaining??!!) under C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL.
- Remove the service-user postgres. The reinstall can't handle that this
user exists (?!).
- Delete all fields in the registry containing the substring postgre
(???????????!!!!!!!!!!!!).

I bet there is a simpler way, right?
