Hi,

I have the same problem:

Unable to login to database (postgres). Reason: could not connect to server: Connection refused (0x0000274D/10061) Is the server running on host "???" and accepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432?

There is no firewall interfering and when I try to start postgres in services error 1053 occures.
I checked the events relating to postgres: all errors read: GMT FATAL: bogus data in lock file "postmaster.pid": ""
What can I do?

Locate and delete the postmaster.pid file then restart your computer and things should work properly. The file is likely in a place like C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\9.0\data (though it may be in Program Files (x86) or have a different version number).

Thanks very much for the quick help. Now it's working properly again. I hope the file was not the result of a virus or something similar.

That's highly unlikely.
