If you're changing the password for the service account then all you 
need to do is make sure you update the service login details for your 
8.0 installation. This is done through the "Log On" tab in the 
properties of the service which you can get to through control panel. 
Your 8.0 installation shouldn't be adversely affected if this is done.
