I've looked for other copies of cygwin1.dll, I was unable to find any.
I have removed every installation of cygwin (removed the dirs) every time I changed the installation path.
I have also checked for applications on BLODA; I don't run any of those.

Now that you mention it, that is the only thing I have changed aside from installing the windows updates.
I haven't done any other change to the system aside from that and the updates.
That said, I'm not sure what to do to get this fixed.

I apologize for this.
