Based on advice I've gotten here
these are the steps I plan to run next time emacs vfork errors happen.

Reboots are time expensive so my next attempt will be to avoid that.

1) stop mcshield.exe [since my employer has McAfee installed on my PC.]
2) run rebase-trigger full.
3) Stop all Cygwin processes.
4) Run Cygwin setup.exe [32-bit].
5) Start mcshield.exe

If that doesn't work, I'll try this next:

If that doesn't work, I'll probably try 64-bit Cygwin again.
