to clean up a old/failed postgres install on windows...
* delete the postgres user, via command line NET USER POSTGRES /DELETE
* delete the postgres 'service', via command line SC DELETE PGSQL-8.3
* delete the directories as you did.
(command lines can (should?) be all lower case, i just capitalized them
to make it clear they were commands). older versions use different
service names... try
sc query | find "pg"
to get the service name for the `sc delete` command...
now, you should be able to clean install postgres
