  </style>Hi Rommel, <br>
Thank you very much for your help. As a windows admin, I deleted the
old postgres user account, and uninstalled postgresql and installed it
to get past the issue.<br>
Kind Regards, <br>
Gotham. <br>

This happened to me before and the problem was with the 'postgres'
Windows account that was created during the first install. If you don't
specify a password for this account, the installer will choose a very
hard to guess, hard to remember password :-). I logged in as an
administrator and removed the postgres user account and let the
installer re-create it. You also have the option of manually setting
the password for this account, then telling the installer what that
password is.<br>
I don't know if your problem is the same as the one I experienced, but
I hope this helps.<br>

After which I uninstalled it by executing the .msi file again. My
intention was to reinstall from scratch, and unfortunately during the
reinstall I am getting a error <br>
'Invalid username specified: logon failure: unknown user name or bad
I am providing valid windows user name and pwd. <br>
How can I get past this issue, please help. <br>
Thanks. <br>
