Setup.exe crashes before opening the servers window on Windows XP

Dear all,
I have the same problem reported in this topic:

any time I start setup.exe (I need to update some packages)  I have this 
error message:

 > Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
 > Runtime Error!
 > Program: C:\cygwin\setup.exe
 > This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an 
unusual way.
 > Please contact the application's support team for more information.

unfortunatelly the modified setup.exe linked in the topic is not 
available and I don't have understand how to fix it.
I have Windows XP SP3 and it has worked fine  until my last restart. I 
have uninstalled  git  in the previous session. The cygwin environment 
seems to work fine, only setup.exe has problems.
