I tried a couple of term settings and nothing changed. I tried ansi and
suddenly I am able to type and move around, so I left it there.

Sorry about that. I'm going to treat my change to vimrc as a quick and dirty
temporary fix, so I can start to learn about vim and how to use it. I need
to go away and do ALOT more reading on cygwin and perhaps unix/linux, before
I can act upon Igor's advice, although I do appreciate the time you and him
have taken to respond.
