If you followed the 7.4.1 readme as a service when you installed it as a
service the first time it would have referenced ipc-daemon2.  To remove
the service do the following at a bash prompt, cygrunsrv -R postmaster.

That will uninstall the postmaster service.  You can then reinstall the
postmaster service as mention in 7.4.3 Readme,

Adding /usr/sbin to your path is necessary only if you did not create a
system variable for cygwin.  If you used control panel->system->advanced
tab->environment variables:  Did you create the cygwin variable in the
top section or the bottom section?  For cygserver to run as a
service(normally under a local system account and not your user account)
you must create the variable in the bottom / system section.  You do
need administrator rights to add system variables.

Hope that helps.
