How to fix postgres.exe processes and multiple instances errors


I have installed a Java application, running on JBoss6 application server platform in Windows 7 32bit.The database server is PostgreSQL 9.0.4 when I start the application, the computer run slowly in a few minutes, I check the process via Task Manager, I find that total of 78 postgres.exe processes. These processes are using up 80% of the CPU resources and computer is running hot. When I end the application, these postgres.exe processes came down to seven. That mean the postgres.exe multiple instances can’t be ended by itself. I have to delete these processes manually.

So my question is that are these postgres.exe processes normal ?

What is postgres.exe?  The postgres.exe maybe a virus or not? Please help…
