OK, that helps explain that. Thanks for following up with a current
I have a Windows VM on this machine so I'll see if I can reproduce that
issue. I need a bit more information to do so. Specifically I need to
know how the user 'pss-svc' was created, what its group memberships are
and what its rights are ("can interact with desktop", "login as

Open, read and write using what command(s) or programs?
Is there a UAC prompt?

If 'pss-svc' user is a member of Administrators or Local Admins, remove
the user from those groups. Pg is quite insistent about not being run as
admin. That shouldn't be the cause of these issues, as it's quite
explicit about it when that's the case, but it's a good idea anyway.
Personally I think Pg should let this up to the user, but that's the way
it is for now.
