how_to:many_instances_of_postgres.exe_running

Many instances of Postgres.exe are running

If you are running VPOP3 3.0 or later, and look in the 'Processes' list in Windows TaskManager you will probably see multiple instances of postgres.exe running.

This is perfectly normal, and does not indicate a problem. The PostgreSQL database works by having a separate instance of postgres.exe for each connection to the database (as well as a few extra for management and house keeping). This behaviour is documented on the PostgreSQL wiki.
