Thanks for the tips. I made a completely fresh install in a new

1. That command gets part way through and then hangs with the blinking
cursor after listing the directories in the path variable.

2. bat file or desktop shortcut hangs with a black window and blinking

3. Set variable and run Cygwin.bat. Black window with blinking cursor.

Literally every single way you can call a cygwin executable just hangs
with a blinking cursor.

I was also inspired to try unsetting the path variable altogether to rule out some rogue application or DLL somewhere else on my system. I did that and then tried to run 'bash.' No improvement. I tried 'grep' and 'base64' as well. All hang with blinking cursor.
