As per the blog you linked to, open an administrator command prompt by right-clicking on the command prompt entry it in the start menu and choosing "Run as administrator", then in the command prompt run:
net user postgres *
and enter a new password when prompted.
If you can't find the command prompt in the start menu, just type "command" into the Start menu search box and it will appear in the list.
Alternately, try completely uninstalling all PostgreSQL versions, then using the system management console to delete the "postgres" user. You cannot do this via the "users" control panel, it must be done via the usermgmt mmc snapin, which you can find called User Management within Administrative Tools in the control panel.
It seems the 9.2 installers will use a different setup that won't require a service password anymore. (Thanks Dave!).
