Do you have any antivirus or other scanning software installed on this
machine? If so, please try - in that order - excluding the PostgreSQL
area, disabling it and completely removing it. This symptom looks a lot
like the issues we've seen repeatedly with AV software not doing it's
job right. And it's not always enough to just disable it, that doesn't
remove the filter driver which is often the problem.
