A few ideas:

1) What is in your environment before running emacs ?
   If it contains emacs_dir or any of the LANG variables then emacs
   could get confused. Knowing what is in your PATH would be useful too.

2) What anti-virus software are you using ?
   Cygwin have a list of problematic tools (search the Cygwin list for
   BLODA) and its possible that emacs is giving a false positive.

Once you get emacs working ok directly from Windows, use
"cygstart ./runemacs" from a Cygwin shell.
