On my home machine, I stopped the Postgres service. There is a known issue with anti-virus software regarding restart.

Though highly tempted to write a profanity-laden rant towards both PostgreSQL and Windows, I channeled my energy.

PostgreSQL is an excellent database. It's ultimately my fault for messing with it. I should have heeded my innate fear of stopping any Windows service.
