You don't mention anything about the Cisco VPN client, but according to your
cygcheck output it's still installed and (probably) running. That's the
reason why cygcheck detects ZoneAlarm; it contains a bundled version of the
same firewall engine, and ZA in general has been known to cause problems of
this kind. I can't guarantee it's the cause of the problem but it's a
significant possibility worth investigating.
OTOH it could be your McAfee. You should try disabling all the advanced
features in that - behaviour blocking, heuristics, any kind of buffer overflow
or other anti-malware protection, and see if that makes a difference.
