Yes, this would be very useful alone or in combination:
Detected current or previous Frobulator AV installation:
Some versions have been known to interfere with Cygwin.
Checking for known problems caused by this software...
No known interferences have not been detected, although
if you run into any of the following symptoms, you
should start by *completely uninstalling* the suspect
software and trying again (simply disabling it will
likely not correct the problem):
The problem with an Embedded Big List of Dodgy Apps is
that any software that automatically updates itself
could at any time suddenly start or stop interfering.
Warning: you are running Windows, so it is likely
that there is at least one Dodgy App hanging around
somewhere. Please reboot and reinstall everything.
