Bug reference:      2133
Logged by:          Guerra Antonio
Email address:      antonio_guerra(at)alice(dot)it
PostgreSQL version: 8.1.1
Operating system:   windows xp professional edition
Description:        can't reinstall postgresql

I installed postegresql the first time regularly.
Then I deleted it using uninstall procedure because I lost the password.
Today I would reinstall postgresql but my computer says:
"user 'postegres' could not be created: the user account already exists.!"
and stops the installation.
First installation left somewhere a file with this parameter but I am not
able to find it. Can you help me?
Thanks in advance
