having this problem too...  not used to windows, using cygwin at office
to be able to do some work without having to learn an other "operating
system".  the popup is the usual microsoft notification "we lost all of
your data, help us to fix our bugs [ok]"

more literally:

start cygwin setup,
get at select packages,
click on [view] until I get the partial view,
only package to update is bash,
from current 3.2.17-15 to new 3.2.25-16,
click on [volgende] ([next] but in dutch),

next is this mostly dutch popup (I work for a dutch company):

text in window decoration: 

white upper frame saying:
 In setup.exe is een fout opgetreden en moet worden
 afgesloten. Onze excuses voor dit ongemak.

on the right hand side there the icon of setup.exe.

then the lower part of the popup says:
 U was bezig met een bewerking. Deze gegevens zijn mogelijk verloren

two files are generated at the same time, put in my Local\ Settings/Temp

  -rw-rw-rw-   1 Mario Frasca root          8742 09-07 09:09 707a_appcompat.txt

they are removed when I click on [Niet verzenden].

what do you suggest?
I already tried to reboot the system and do the update as first thing,
but setup.exe crashes all the same...  by the way, I'm using Setup.exe
version 2.573.2.2
