You need to change the password on the "postgres" system account in
Windows using the administrative tools, THEN re-install.
Alternately, just re-install with the old password then log in to
PostgreSQL as the "postgres" user and change the postgres user's password.
This confusion arises because there are two "postgres" users - a system
user, and database user. More information can be found in the list
archives and (hopefully) the manual.
