either All Users or your User Id based on how you answered the option for "all users" 
or "just me" during setup.

Thought - which option did you select and are you the administrator for this system - 
also what OS are you on and one last thought:

Looking at your log:

2005/05/02 13:22:22 running: C:\cygwin\bin\sh.exe -c /etc/postinstall/ 
2005/05/02 13:35:42 Enabled Anti Virus software 
2005/05/02 13:35:43 mbox note: Nothing needed to be installed 
2005/05/02 13:35:44 Ending cygwin install 

Notice the Nothing needed to be installed note - did you actually see it download and 
install anything - did you in fact select something to be installed - from the Chooser 
screen when it shows you all the categories you must select at least the Base
