PostgreSQL 8.3 installation.  As far as I could tell the original 
installation was removed, there is no PostgreSQL directory and nothing

C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3.  This installation will be

There is no such directory.  PostgreSQL8.3 does not show up on the 
currently installed programs list. 

Do I need to do some sort of PostgreSQL specific uninstall?

Any help or advice would be appreciated.
