    Default Postgresql - connection refused.

    Hi everyone, im not sure if I'm posting in the wrong forum, if that's case im sorry.

    I just bought myself a new computer to grind on, as the old is pretty fucked up atm. Here is link to my computer:
    Samsung Series 9 2012 (15″) Review Ultrabook News and the Ultrabook Database

    When I'm trying to install, everything goes smoothly until the end, thats where i get problem when it comes to installing postgresql. This is what i get as error:

    hem problem 4.png

    I have Win7 and this what ive tried so far:

    1) PC name must be in english - my computer name is "Mikal"
    hem problem 5.png
    2) My windows name is the same, i have also tried to reboot my computer. Have also tried to install running as administrator.
    3) Secondary logon i could chose between automatic delayed and automatic, i took automatic.

    4) UAC is off.
    hem problem 7.png
    5) Have firewall disabled
    hem problem 8.png

    So whats wrong?

    Did you start the secondary logon service after changing the start type or was it already running?

    I suggest you download the latest postgresql 8.4 installer from PostgreSQL: The world's most advanced open source database and try to install this one. At least it should give you a more detailled error message.

    Please try this:
    - uninstall Postgres from Control panel (but do not delete windows user)
    - download latest 8.4 from PostgreSQL: The world's most advanced open source database
    - do right-click - run as admin on downloaded instalelr and install postgres manually - but NOT in default folder
    (set C:\Postgresql as install.folder)

    If no success - uninstall it again, but do NOT delete that folder
    do right-click on it - properties - security - set full access for user "everyone"
    and try installation again

    If even this will not install - uninstall postgres, then
    open CMD (as admin) and execute following command there
    netsh winsock reset
    you should receive message about successful execution
    reboot PC and try again
