the attachment is in the archive :

ls on my Windows XP box recently stopped working. Running an update
from the latest setup.exe hasn't helped.

your cygwin dll is 1.7.7 while last one is 1.7.9, so your update did not work.

If I type just 'ls', not output. Same for 'ls bin' when I know that folder has stuff in. 'ls bin[tab][tab]' shows the files as expected: tchiverton@EV34:~$ ls

so you are in your own home directory, that was not clear from your description. How are you running the shell and which is ?

tchiverton@EV34:~$ ls bin
tchiverton@EV34:~$ ls bin/
> tchiverton@EV34:~$ ls bin/

what is the output of "ls -la ." ?

Attached is cygcheck output run from a bash prompt, it moaned a little when run: tchiverton@EV34:~$ cygcheck -s -v -r> /cygdrive/c/cygcheck.txt garbled output from 'id' command - no uid= found

that is likely the issue. On the cygcheck output, after the PATH and before

SysDir: C:\WINDOWS\system32

you should have something like

Output from C:\cygwin\bin\id.exe
UID: 1008(marco)    GID: 513(None)
513(None)           0(root)             544(Administrators) 545(Users)

Have you problems or messed with the files:
