Comment(by robe):

 Hmm that still doesn't make sense since PostGIS only cares about the
 postgres database account, not the service one.  You sure you don't have a
 ::1/128 set to trust or possibly you have it set to ident.  ident would
 then work if the account you are logging in with is the same as the
 postgres service account.  Then again if you are running the install as
 administrator, ident wouldn't let you get by without a password either.

 I think windows 7 uses by default IPv6 not IPV4. so it would use the entry
 marked ::1/128
