Oh, that -v option... ;-)

I know cygcheck is reporting Zone Alarm, but I've never had Zone Alarm 
installed on my system.   I do have McAfee installed, but have never had a 
problem with it blocking an installation.  I tried to reinstall just the 
cygwin application last night and rebooted immediately; but still I see the 
same information from cygcheck.  I will work this again tonight and try 
installing from reboot to safe mode and reinstall to see if that makes a 
difference.  I don't always stop all services before a restart and have relied 
on the reboot to take care of any issues with updating running processes.  
Perhaps that is not wise.
