I had the same problem after instaling some vista updates.
Look here for description: 

I had this problem with vista updates for 2 separate occasions
now, so my guess it's something to do with windows update.

Try updating windows until it works again or not updating it
if it does work.

I currently have msys running under vista and automatic vista update
turned off. I'll see how it'll work after I execute the next update

Good luck,
