Every time I try to Install PostBooks installers release 2.2.1 on Windows XP a new user account is created in my computer where I am the administrator without me been asked. The account does not have a name. However it is password protected and I can't open it.

    This is normal behavior. The installer creates a windows user account for the PostgreSQL database service to run on. As the adiministrator you may change the password for the PostrgreSQL account so you can log in, but if you do so you must make sure the password for the PostgreSQL service is changed accordingly. There generally should be no reason to do this.

    If you set up PostBooks in a multi-user production environment, you would likely install PostgreSQL, with its corresponding windows user account, on a central server.
