Since the latest update to AV from www.avast.com reports cygwin1.dll infected with Win32.Trojan-gen.
Sounds like it could be a generic false alarm, so have mailed them to let them know. Will let you know as soon as I get a response.
Can anyone confirm the false alarm with another AV product?

Can confirm that my Avast shows the same problem, cygwin1.dll showing as a trojan.
still no luck.
have overwritten the cygwin file, now app is inop and getting an error from the auto update asking if i'm connected to the internet.
would like to re-d/l the app and reinstall but getting a server error as well. hope it's not me...
from the guys at Avast:
you are right, it's a false alarm. The file is the cygwin library in
fact. Thank you for notice us, we'll repair it ASAP.
