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, 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

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....
