When you attempt to restart, notice any error logs in the pg-log directory.
Any information there will give a clue.
On a related note, I had this experience once with Pg 8.2 and Windows 2K.
For some reason, the Postgres working directory was set to be read-only. I
have no idea how this happened - perhaps it was the anti-virus software or a
rogue admin. But once I reset the directory it worked.
