1. Reboot your computer
2. If that doesn't help look for the hidden system file postmaster.pid in the postgresql data folder, delete it and reboot your computer again.
3. Check the postgresql service in the windows services (control panel->administration). Sometimes it helps to change the Logon As.. to "local system account"
4. Check our FAQ:

I did all of those things, it still doesn't work. It says PostgresQL service started and then stopped.... I tried to change the logon as well. I have done everything in the FAQ, uninstalled all my anti virus software and disabled windows firewall.. cant figure this out

I forgot to mention that I am on Windows 7

turn on the secondary logon: The secondary logon service is a standard windows service which is available on every windows computer. In the latest versions it is not started automatically. You need to start it via control panel > administrative tools > services. Starting it once should insure it works in the future also.

Right-click run the HoldemManager installer -run as admin!-.

If it still won't install, run the manual 8.4.8 installer from PostgreSQL: The world's most advanced open source database (http://www.postgresql.org)
