Hmmm.... Last time I tried (8.2.4) I had no problems installing on Vista
Basic once I disabled UAC.
See if the following whitepaper helps:

1) Disabling UAC
3) If it says it is installed, remove it through the controll panel
4) Remove the C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.2 directory
5) Try again.
Note that win32 and general are probably better lists for this sort of
issue to start on.
