Follow up regarding setup.exe hanging

Sun Mar 10 15:31:00 GMT 2013

Now when ran with the proper permissiong, setup.exe still hangs.  Here is the output just before setup.exe hangs:
-------------------------------- start
$c/cygwin-packages/setup -q -n -D -K  -l C:\cygwin-packages  -R C:\cygwin  -s   -P openssh
Starting cygwin install, version 2.774
User has backup/restore rights
io_stream_cygfile: fopen(/etc/setup/net-proxy-host) failed 2 No such file or directory
io_stream_cygfile: fopen(/etc/setup/net-proxy-port) failed 2 No such file or directory
io_stream_cygfile: fopen(/etc/setup/extrakeys) failed 2 No such file or directory
Current Directory: C:cygwin-packages
Could not open service McShield for query, start and stop. McAfee may not be installed, or we don't have access.
Selected local directory: C:cygwin-packages
---------------- end

I have no idea about what the reference to "McShield" or to "McAfee" is about. All I can think of is that it is proprietary software that I don't own and Mr. McAfee is in South America somewhere.  Is the absence of this causing setup.exe to go crazy and 

Any advice to get this working would be appreciated.
