Dear list

I face with some problem in installation PostgreSQL 8.3 on winXP , long time 
before I used PostgreSQL and PostGIS for managing shape file data. Last week I 
tried to install PostgreSQL 8.4, after that I removed PostgreSQL 8.3 (I only 
uninstalled inside windows control panel/add and then I deleted all folder 
inside window programs) and I reinstalled  PostgreSQL 8.4, and problem was 
starting happen from this step, until now, I could not connect data by my user 
and password or start PostgreSQL8.4 service from Administrative Tools . Even I 
tried to uninstall and reinstall for at least 20 times, delete folder, remove 
user/password on Administrative Tools. 

Could you please help me to fix my problem 

So today I tried several of time as bellow

1.Add/remove PostgreSQL 
2.delete postgres user and pass by NET USER postgres /delete
3. delete folder of postgreSQL
4. Delete in side regiter of winXP in 
side KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\PostgreSQL\Installations\

But when I install it still got errors as the detail in install-postgresql.log, 
I added some few line of the last install-postgresql.log file

Files\PostgreSQL\8.4\installer\server\startserver.vbs" postgresql-8.4

And when I started server by using pgAdim the server response as below:

Server doesn't listen 

the server doesn't accept connections: the connection library repots

could not connect to server: Connection refused (0x0000274D/10061)Is the server 
running on host "127.0.0.1" and accepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432?

Thank again and very sorry for this very long question 

Many thanks

T.X.Quang.
