grep refusing to descend into directories on Win95

grep has been refusing to descend into directories on my Win95 
computer.  It says it has been refused permission.  This is true 
  in both the 12/05/2001 and the 12/04/2001 versions of CygWin 
(when it didn't work, I did an update, and I had just updated 
recently).  I tried closing every application (well, the visible 
ones), it didn't make any difference.  If I named the directory 
in the command (grep -i MyClassEdit demo/*) then it refused to 
descend into the subdirectories.

Any suggestions?
