  There are only two possible packages in Cygwin that could be responsible for
a BSoD: ioperm and libusb-win32, as they install device drivers (*.sys files),
which are the only things that could cause a BSoD aside from some bug in the
OS kernel itself.

  If you don't have either of those installed, then it's some unrelated thing
on your system as Larry suggests.  If you do, and you're not using them, just
uninstall them.

  It's conceivable you might get more BSoD trouble when you try that; if so,
the best bet is to boot into safe mode, and delete either/both of "ioperm.sys"
and/or "libusb0.sys" from your C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers directory; then
reboot in normal mode and use setup.exe to uninstall any remaining leftovers.
