Stop worrying about it.  Your original cygcheck says there's nothing
obviously wrong with your installation, besides the possible annoyance
of "c:\cygwin\bin" being listed in your path twice.  I don't know what 
made you decide that your registry and/or mounts needed "adjustment"
but if you haven't gotten yourself into a state where Cygwin is 
completely broken, I'd recommend quitting while you're ahead.  If you
are in that state already, I'd recommend that you remove your Cygwin 
installation and reinstall it using 'setup.exe'.  Once it's installed 
again, I'd also recommend that if it isn't broken at that point, don't 
fiddle with it.
