Jeff - Thanks in particular for your help on this, it is greatly appreciated!

It was a hidden folder, but not anymore!! I found the file and re-set the password for the 'postgres' user and can now connect using my 'md5' hostssl connection:

   hostssl all all md5

   C:\msys\1.0\local\pgsql\bin>psql -d apt -U postgres

The file is called "pgpass.conf" on Windows.  As for the "Application
Data", it may be called differently if your Windows is localized -- try
looking for %APPDATA%.  (I think I'd do this by opening a terminal
window and "echo %APPDATA%" or "cd %APPDATA%").

You can also just click start, run then type %appdata% and windows will open an explorer window in that directory. I guess it's also possible you need to turn on the view hidden and system directories in the explorer options to see/find in that directory, but I'm not sure.
