1) Uninstalled the following programs+program files folder:

GetDataBack for FAT and NTFS
Registry Mechanic
TuneUp Utilities
Daemon Tools
Kaspersky (was not installed during the time of the errors so can't be to

2) Rebooted

4) net user postgres /delete
5) regedit and deleted all keys in software relating to the appz above
5) install msiexec/i postgresql-8.3.msi /Le c:\msiexeclog.txt
   postgresql installation did NOT fail as before (stopping at starting
service and not being able to complete installation)
6) Check service running via Administrative Tools=>Services and it says it
7) Attached postgresql-8.3.log and msiexeclog.txt to
8) Installed Holdem Manager
9) Saw that it's working; imported files to database
10) Rebooted

Thanks for the help all and I will let you know.

Kind regards, Frank.
