I am experiencing some problems on my Windows NT system. I do not believe that Cygwin is the culprit. However, I do need to get a confirmation from the community.
What changes does Cygwin bring to a Windows NT 4.0 system? More particularly, I want to know if there is any Cygwin code that runs when I boot up my Windows NT
machine, login and start say MS Word. I believe that no Cygwin code adds itself to the startup and login sequence. In other words, if I reboot my machine and do not
explicitly call any Cygwin executable, it is as if Cygwin was never installed (except for the HD space taken).
Does Cygwin changes/adds something in the registry? What about environment variables? What does Cygwin do when it installs the software? Its sets up directories with
the executable, but what more?
