If you're trying to access the user account information for the "logon as 
service" component (not the database superuser), check under Start - 
Settings - Control Panel - User Accounts.  There should be a user postgres 
with the password that was assigned by the installer.  You can delete this 
user account and start from scratch, or change the password to one more 
convenient for yourself.  Use this new password when you re-install 

If you uninstall PostgreSQL, you may have to delete all references to 
pgAdmin III in the registry before re-installing PostgreSQL to get a 
complete clean reinstallation.  I noticed that the uninstaller left some 
pgAdmin relics behind that interfered with starting pgAdmin III cleanly 
after reinstallation.
