I don't really think you understand what you're asking at all.  The
mounts in the above registry keys are NORMAL and you DO NOT want to
remove them or else your system will break.  If you're asking about how
to switch your mounts from SYSTEM to USER mounts then just rerun setup
and choose "just me" instead of "all users."  In your other email you
mentioned some *other* keys which showed mounts from an ancient version
of Cygwin.  Those can be removed, but they are not hurting anything by
being there as current Cygwin versions will ignore them, and it's clear
you're not quite sure what you're doing so it's best not to mess with
the registry directly.
