Another idea:

You could download the packages needed for a basic install from any 
server, e.g.:

and save them under a new directory (not \cygwin!) while keeping the 
directory-structure intact. Then run setup and tell it to install from
that local directory. Surely not comfortable, but if you succeed 
you'll  have learned something about cygwin :)

I once did that on a PC without internet, but then I had my 
cygwin-download-directory from the other PC on USB.

Maybe the windows-ftp-tool can help you to download, I don't know.

You should do that.

Maybe autoruns sheds some light?

Or msconfig?
