The above may be true, but...

The problem is due to the following:

    $ ls -l /mnt/c/WINNT/regedit
    -rwxrwx---    1 Administ SYSTEM      72464 Jul 26  2000 /mnt/c/WINNT/regedit

The "solution" is the following:

    $ chmod 775 /mnt/c/WINNT/regedit.exe
    $ type -a regedit
    regedit is /mnt/c/WINNT/regedit

So, you can "fix" your problem with:

    $ chmod 755 /cygdrive/c/WINNT/*.exe
