I have attached the sysinfo, please don't abuse it in any way possible, I
trust you guys with that.

As far as I can remember, no OEM versions of anti-virus were installed.
Like I said before, did have these installed (removed them already):
Norton Anti-Virus
Kaspersky Anti-Hacker
(temporarily installed Kaspersky now, but will remove before trying to
install postgresql again when I get a good tip that might help)
Still have installed:
Registry Mechanic ( )
Tune-Up Utilities ( )

Kind regards, Frank.
