After some research on what my services actually do on, I disabled some of them and now after 13
installations and 8 horrible days without being able to programme my cygwin
fully works!
I believe the services that messed up things were my printer' s (Canon MP160)
bundled software OmnipageSE4 and some installed by windows automatic update.
My Logitech camera (acer omnicamera) does not seem to have any interference with
cygwin (now its 4 services are running along with cygwin just fine).
Thanks for the help and another hurray for cugwin and its list that promote 
creativity and resourcefulness!
