note, in some Home versions of Windows, you might not be able to get to 
the Users and Groups computer management tool.  
as an alternative, you can use the command line...

    NET USER postgres somenewpassword


then give this password to the postgres installer.   this is used as the 
'service' password that the postgres service processes run as.   its not 
used for logging onto postgres as a database user or anything else.
