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.

In the windows environment, neither is set.
Under cygwin, LANG was set to C.UTF-8.  Unsetting it had no effect.

Under Windows, PATH is

C:\Documents and Settings\udalrich>path
PATH=C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI Control Panel;C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem\;C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin;c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_18\bin;C:\Program Files\apache-ant-1.8.0\bin

Under Cygwin, PATH is

$ echo $PATH
/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/c/WINDOWS/system32:/c/WINDOWS:/c/WINDOWS/System32/Wbem:/c/Program Files/ATI Technologies/ATI Control Panel:/c/Program Files/QuickTime/QTSystem/:/c/Program Files/TortoiseSVN/bin:/c/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_18/bin:/c/Program Files/apache-ant-1.8.0/bin:/usr/lib/lapack:/usr/share/emacs/emacs-23.1/bin
/usr/share/emacs/emacs-23.1 is from a previous attempt at installing emacs.  The directory does not exist anymore.

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.

Norton Security Scan

I have a Logitech web cam driver installed, but it doesn't appear to be running the service mentioned in the BLODA.

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