Thankyou very much for your email, I very very much appreciate it !!!
I have now turned off Norton Internet Security and used startxwin.bat instead. I then set the DISPLAY variable (according to the host name that I get from "hostname". I then type xterm to no effect (ie. it appears in the ps list but there's still no window). I have also tried starting again (after killing the X Manager) and setting the DISPLAY variable first (just in case this made any difference), and I get exactly the same result. Help ??
Also (just as a yes/no/probably question as I know that this is off-topic) but I am also assuming that with a bit of trolling through the Norton stuff that I can find a better way of turning this off every time I want to use cygwin as opposed to doing it manually each time ??
