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 <> or some kind of malware or virus to me.
