 I did a search using the built-in windows search tool ('search
 companion' ... gotta love XP), selected target "all hard drives" which
 in my case is just one - "c:\", search term "cygwin", and it tells me
 that there is one and only one "cygwin1.dll" file anywhere on my
 machine, located in c:\cygwin\bin.

 Running the cygcheck program ("cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out")
 results in an empty (zero byte) file.  No output.

 Any other ideas or suggestions?
