Hey, my message, which I had been trying to post since early Saturday morning, finally made it through. That was a struggle ...
To answer some issues that have come up since then, Linda Walsh asked about "procexp" (Process Explorer). Since I never heard of this program, I assume I am not using it.
Somebody else mentioned Windows Update. The affected machine is on automatic Windows Update. In fact, I have a list of Microsoft updates that have come in recently but cannot be installed for some arcane reason. I have not resolved this problem yet, and this is the first time I have ever had trouble installing MS updates. Don't know whether this is related to the cygwin bash & CSRSS problem, but the coincidence is interesting.
Now I see Dave Korn's suggestion about disabling Symantec. I'll look into that. Thanks.
