Re: 1.5.18-1: issue with cygwin1.dll: "system shared memory version mismatch detected"

Well ProcessExplorer used to point services.exe on
c:\windows\system\DRIVER, were I couldn't find any
services.exe in the explorer (I checked that explorer
was not configured for hidding files). Moreover I was
not able to create a file called services.exe,
explorer wouldn't do it because another one was called
like this in the folder!!!! Then, in a command prompt
I executed "del services.exe", and the del command
told me no file was there. Then, I did "mv
services.exe services.exe.old", and the file was
renamed. I created a services.exe from an empty txt
file, and that's it, services.exe (the one containing
a copy of cygwin1.dll) does not launch himself anymore
at each boot and cygwin works correctly.

I definitly think it's a worm.

Thanks to you, thank you and the other guys in the
forum for your gracious help.

But everything seems to work perfectly.

bash-3.00$ mount
c: on /cygdrive/c type system (binmode,noumount)
d: on /cygdrive/d type system (binmode,noumount)
e: on /cygdrive/e type system (binmode,noumount)
g: on /cygdrive/g type system (binmode,noumount)
h: on /cygdrive/h type system (binmode,noumount)

And I have a /etc/setup/installed.db in my cygwin
directory. Attached with the mail, my last cygcheck
which seems fine.
