RE: Almost nothing works for me in Cygwin 1.5.24-2

I did what you said and uninstalled Zonealarm. I tried Cygwin again and got
the same errors. However suspecting that the problem might have something to
do with my other security software, I tried disabling another program I use
called Bufferzone from Trustware (http://www.trustware.com). And that fixed
Bufferzone sort of sandboxes other programs so they can't hurt your system.
Normally when it does this it puts a red border around the window, but
apparently it doesn't do that to the command prompt, and I didn't know
Bufferzone was "protecting" my system from Cygwin. Now that I'm aware of it
I'll tell it to let Cygwin be and that should solve the problem.
You might want to make a note of this somewhere, as programs like Bufferzone
are becoming more common, other people will probably start having the same
problems. And/or contact Trustware to get them to sort it out.
That's for all your help. ^_^
