comment Basic Question on input to PostgreSQL
I have accepted the answer given realising that there is no one right answer. The command line options will all work but having been used to do everything with a GUI, the pgAdminIII option suits me better.

pgAdminIII is the answer to my question. I have found a tutorial that explains its functions. I cant post this as an answer yet though :)

comment Lost postgreSQL password in Windows installation
Ah Craig, it is one thing being told what to check and a completely different thing to know HOW to check it and WHAT to do once you've checked it. I'm struggling to deal with a Windows software installation which seems to have gone wrong: emphasis on the word struggling :)

comment Lost postgreSQL password in Windows installation
I think I found the password stored in plain text in a file called pgpass.conf in the users application data area. However, when I try to use Stackbuilder to create a database i get this error when I enter the password. cretadb: could not connect to database template: could not connect to server: connection refused (xoxoooo274D/10061) is the server running on host "localhost" (127.0.0.1)and accepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432?
