I found out that on Windows XP Home, you need to log on in safe mode to get
full access to permission controls when you right click a file, or you have
to use CACLS at the command prompt. I was able to delete the cygwin
directory by logging on in safe mode, though the security tab features were
difficult to understand.

First I tried CACLS from the C:\cygwin directory. I entered:

    CACLS *.* /t /e /g Owner:f

and the response was:

    Processed file: C:\cygwin\Thumbs.db
    The data is invalid

Then I tried:

    del Thumbs.db

and the response was:

    Could not find C:\cygwin\Thumbs.db

Maybe that makes sense. I wasn't sure about the commands. At least it's all
over now.
