Let's start from the beginning.  Please review and follow the Cygwin
problem reporting guidelines at <>, in
particular the bit about attaching your cygcheck output.

Looks like you haven't completely uninstalled Cygwin in the first place --
see <>.  Also, /usr/bin is a *mount*
under Cygwin -- it *should* appear empty in Explorer; for details see

If you have a problem with setup's installation, the places to find the
