FYI, it is "days" not "day's".

Nonetheless, you are asking for help in the cygwin list.  The above page
was created to help you ask intelligent questions so that problems can
be diagnosed.  cygcheck is a tool devised to help diagnose problems.

If you don't want help then all of the documentation is available at the site.  It's pretty clearly labelled.  If you do want help
then please don't argue with people trying to help.  We really do need
cygcheck output.
