I've tried renaming C:\cygwin, rebooting, and attempting to delete the directory while there is no 'current' cygwin installation. Searching the registry for 'tabs' (the name of the leaf directory) finds no relevant instances. A disk check for NTFS problems didn't help.

I'm not running any antivirus software (although the latest Cygwin installer seems to think I am). I'll do the necessary sacrifices tomorrow if I can get a two-headed goat.
