Too bad, that's just a generic "accessed memory you shouldn't have" 
exception.  Not much help narrowing down the source.  That could be a 
driver or hardware issue, but since you say it's repeatable that seems 
less likely.

At this point, fork in the road.  If someone else can reproduce this on 
another Windows system, they may be able to run with it.  But if you can 
spare some time to dig further, the instructions at 
http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Getting_a_stack_trace_of_a_running_PostgreSQL_backend_on_Windows 
go over how to trace into where it's actually failing at yourself.  If 
you run PostgreSQL on Windows, that's good defensive practice to fit in 
on a day it's not an emergency to do so.  (The same is true of any 
platform, it just takes more time to setup on Windows)
