The secondary logon service is a standard windows service which is available on every windows computer. In the latest versions it is not started automatically. You need to start it via control panel > administrative tools > services. Starting it once should insure it works in the future also.

manually download and install SQL 8.4.4 from PostgreSQL: The world's most advanced open source database (http://www.postgresql.org)
If that fails try 8.3.11 and install it to port 5433

Password is postgrespass
If it doesn't accept that password during installation click on Start and go to Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt

* If you are on Vista, rightclick and choose "Run as Administrator".

A black box should appear. Type 'net user postgres /del' (without the quotes) and press enter.

The user is now deleted and you can (re)install PostgreSQL.
