clean uninstall

Fri Jul 28 18:43:00 GMT 2017


I have deleted all but var and dev from my C:\cygwin folder (which was 
quite painful and time-consuming BTW) and then moved the cygwin folder 
to my Documents folder and then deleted a Cygwin desktop icon and two 
Cygwin folders from my Start > All Programs menu.  Is that sufficient to 
give me a clean uninstall so that I can do a brand new Cygwin install 
without problems?  I did it that way because I couldn't figure out any 
other way of uninstalling Cygwin.

The reason that I want to do a clean re-install is because as per advice 
from the list I now want to do a selective install rather than 
installing whole Categories as I have before.

Thanks very much in advance for any help.  I would appreciate replies 
from multiple people to make sure that the advice I'm getting is 
generally agreed upon.
