thanks for the reply but I do not have a "Start Database" Icon. I think a DB was never yet created as PostGIS Installation fails, because the Server created by pg Admin III can not connect.

Is it correct to use default settings?
Server [localhost]
Database [postgres]
Post [5432]
Username [postgres]

The server does not connect, but in I cant in
postgresql.conf setting is
listen_addresses = '*'         #following help files this should make                            the server listen to all connections...

I think I dont understand the entire "Server" concept of PostgreSQL - what is it good for if I might just want to operate on a single machine?

I cant install PostGIS because during Installation it tries dbcreate, which does not work while PostgreSQL server can not connect...

hints will be appreciated. thanks!
