You could download the packages needed for a basic install from any
and save them under a new directory (not \cygwin!) while keeping the
directory-structure intact. Then run setup and tell it to install from
that local directory. Surely not comfortable, but if you succeed
you'll have learned something about cygwin :)
I once did that on a PC without internet, but then I had my
cygwin-download-directory from the other PC on USB.
Maybe the windows-ftp-tool can help you to download, I don't know.

You should do that.

Maybe autoruns sheds some light?
