Thought I fixed it.  Sigh. . . .

Gosh this is irritating.  I did not intentionally send 'mime type
"text/html"'.  Ok, fixed that annoying Outlook default "feature".  Do
you recommend Mozilla Thuderbird?

Ok, I tried to send the output of cygcheck as an attachment, but your
mailer refused it.  I have included it at the end of the message.

Subject: problems with new installation

Thanks for your reply.  My delay in replying is the result of my machine
being compromised coincident with my installing cygwin.  Luckily for me,
the compromise appears to have been over the network and to have nothing
to do with cygwin (or anything else I have done or not done.)  I have
now reinstalled cygwin from scratch.  

In answer to your implied question, the reason I would have preferred to
have the old version back is that I did not have time for this.  I don't
think of myself as requiring a terribly sophisticated computing
environment but I have had to install, to date, 7 additional packages as
I found basic tools I use every day were not included in the default
installation (more, tetex, tetex-extras, ghostscript, tcsh, openssh,
emacs).  I also have had to completely redo my .cshrc, .login, etc. and
am far from getting things working the way I want (and the way they
worked before). But that's neither here nor there at this point.

I have the following problems (possibly you should read my questions
below first - I leave that up to you):

Emacs doesn't work right.  1)  ^X^C does not close it - I have to use Mx
kill-emacs.  2)  I cannot cut or paste into it.  3)  I cannot use the
mouse to change the location of the pointer.  4)  backspace doesn't
work.  The pull-down menus don't work - not that I want them, but I
don't like having to go to so much trouble to close emacs. I've also had
trouble with the display getting screwed up - two lines of text stuck at
the top and not moving when I page down, etc.  

The icon opens a bash shell.  I changed my shell in /etc/passwd to tcsh
but I seem to have to actually log in to get a tcsh shell.  This, to me,
is not an improvement.  Before I clicked on the icon and got a tcsh
shell.  I tried creating a shortcut to /bin/tcsh but that still did not
give me a tcsh shell.

I have the following questions:

In order to cut and paste among cygwin shell windows, emacs windows, and
Windows windows, perhaps I have to have X running first?  (If not, what
do I need to do instead?)  I did not remember to tell our computer
services people to load Exceed.  Will the current emacs work with Exceed
or do I have to download and install more cygwin packages, or . . .  ?
I have attached the output of the command cygcheck -rsc so you can see
exactly what I have.  I did not download xemacs because in the past
emacs had worked fine with Exceed.  (Yes, obviously if I am going to use
Exceed, I will have to have the systems people install it.  I'm asking
what my options are here, and trying to sort out what problems arise
from what.)

In /etc/passwd, there are the following "users":  SYSTEM,
Administrators, HelpAssistant, ntguest, SUPPORT_388945a0, testman in
addition to me.  Since no one but me is supposed to be using cygwin, and
our computer services people certainly aren't going to help support it,
should I delete some of these users, and if so, what is the appropriate

Are there any other security related issues I should know about?  I have
to assume that cygwin as installed is safe until I have time to look
into it, so I am hoping that my faith is not misplaced.
