Setup of cygwin unsuccessful

I did not succeed to install cygwin (Version 2.510.2.2) on my laptop computer (it worked fine on my desktop).

Download worked fine and also the installation succeeded almost to the end. But during the postinstall the program "ash.exe" crashed.

No home directory or initial .bashrc files were generated. Also the windows path was not altered.

When running cygwin, no commands (not even "ls") are known. When I run directly "ls.exe" from windows, it crashes. When I run cygcheck bash crashes.

The computer and account name contain no spaces.

I paste here the suspicious lines I found in the log-file:
