and, for the novice Windows XP Pro admin, realize that the Users tool in
the Control Panel is useless... Rather, go into Control Panel ->
Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Local Users and Groups,
which is the 'real' account management tool, where you can see all the
service accounts and so forth. The 'postgres" account should NOT be a
member of any special groups.
If you reset the password in a 'service' account like postgres here,
then also go into Services, find the PostgreSQL service, properties, and
on its 'Log on' tab, set the same account and password, as this is
required for the service to start.
