  There's no such error message as "dll failed".  What did it *actually* say?

  What did you actually *do* to reinstall cygwin?  Rerun setup?  Delete the
whole thing and start again?

  What is "Managed"?  Where are these buttons?  What did you *actually* do?

  What did you *exactly* do?

  What, the entire registry?  Nope, thought not.  What did you *exactly* do?

  What, all of them?  Deleted them how?  From where?  From the
windows/system32 directory?  From the registry?  From the services control
manager database?

  What did you *actually* do?

  Read the whole thing in detail, particularly the bit about sending your
cygcheck output ***as an attachment*** please, not in the body of your email,
and the bits about giving step-by-step descriptions of /exactly/ what you did
and /exactly/ what happened.

  Generally, when setup.exe fails, your best bet is to make sure that *all*
cygwin applications and services have been terminated, then run it again and
tell it to install from the local directory; it will then go through and fix
up anything that didn't get completed last time round.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
