I had the same problem, and tried this in the end, maybe it will help you. I run Vista and Zonealarm. Vista auto updated yesterday, and that's when my problems started.

Anyway, I opened ZoneAlarm to the programs page, and manually added the postgres.exe to the program exceptions. Then I went to Task Manager (cntrl-alt-delete) and ended any process that said postgres. Then I fired up HEM, and HEM asked to start the db sevice, and after choosing the default db in the popup window, everything seems fine so far.

This is usually a firewall or windows update issue.

First try to reboot. If that doesnt help delete the \postgresql\8.x\data\postmaster.pid file, if you see it.

If no help, try this:

Start > Programs > PostgreSQL > 8.x > Stop Service

Start > Programs > PostgreSQL > 8.x > Start Service

Add exceptions to the windows firewall, even if it is off. If you have a 3rd party firewall, do the equivalent or uninstall it temporarily - http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmviewfaq.aspx?faqid=171

Please try following all of these FAQs, step by step:

1) http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmviewfaq.aspx?faqid=34
2) reinstall the same version of postgresql, using the same \data folder - http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmviewfaq.aspx?faqid=177
3) http://www.holdemmanager.net/forum/showthread.php?t=8261

If that doesn't help you will probably have to reinstall PostgreSQL completely and reimport your hands.
