If you do the old standard,

will that take care of it, or would I need to delete what is in those

For these files, your above recipe will work.
The location of the cygwin directory will be the same. Is there a list of
the windows registry entries for cygwin? I will not want to re-import the
entire regisrry, so it would be nice to be able to make up a little batch
file that would just insert the entries related to cygwin.
As the FAQ that I pointed to said, there's nothing in the registry Cygwin
needs to work.
