do you know how to install previous version of cygwin? Is there any way

As Marco mentioned, setup.exe is a user-space program, not a kernel one.
Therefore, it is not possible for it to be crashing your system. If you
are experiencing a blue-screen or any kind of O/S crash, this can only
be initiated by kernel-level code. Beyond the obvious O/S code itself,
things like hardware drivers and some virus and malware detectors fall
into this category. Your best bet is to look at any recent O/S, driver,
virus, and malware updates or additions that could be responsible.
Looking for a Cygwin-specific solution is at best a time-sink.
I don't know what is wrong. I tried to run cygcheck.exe but I got
message "Not enough memory". I restarted computer and tried again and I
got same message. I have windows xp 32bit with 4GB memory on it.
Sounds like <http://cygwin.com/acronyms/#BLODA> or some kind of malware or
virus to me.
