Oh, that -v option... ;-)

I know cygcheck is reporting Zone Alarm, but I've never had Zone Alarm
installed on my system. I do have McAfee installed, but have never had a
problem with it blocking an installation. I tried to reinstall just the
cygwin application last night and rebooted immediately; but still I see the
same information from cygcheck. I will work this again tonight and try
installing from reboot to safe mode and reinstall to see if that makes a
difference. I don't always stop all services before a restart and have relied
on the reboot to take care of any issues with updating running processes.
Perhaps that is not wise.
