uninstall cygwin


I would like to uninstall a Cygwin installation under
Windows XP: to do this I follow the instruction in

but I have several problems.

Point 1) I type cygrunsrv -L at Cygwin prompt, but I
get the message
 "bash: cygrunsrv: command not found". What does this
mean? Is it safe to assume that I have non Cygiwn 
services running, and that I can pass to point 2?
Point 2) What is the X11 server? How do I know if
there are any Cygwin programs that might be running 
in the background, and in case there are some, how do
I terminate them?

If I complete these points, there should be no problem
with the following ones: basically, I just
delete Cygwin directory from the hard disk. I didn't
add Cygwin to system path, neither did I set
CYGWIN environment variable, so unless the installer
did it, I shouldn't need to do anything else.
Thanks for your attention,
