Please review the Cygwin problem reporting guidelines at
<> to see what information is usually
requested when reporting Cygwin problems.  Particularly, you should have
provided the output of "cygcheck -svr" on your system as an uncompressed
text attachment to your message.

At a guess, you most likely have more than one Cygwin1.dll on your
machine.  Run the Windows Find (Start Menu->Search) and search for all
instances of Cygwin1.dll.  Delete all but the one in your Cygwin's /bin
directory, then you should be able to reinstall normally.
P.S. This is not a Cygwin/X problem, and thus belongs on the main Cygwin
list (<cygwin at cygwin dot com>).
