I have deleted the packages found under C:\Users\MyUserName\Documents\CYGWIN PACKAGES several times in the last day or two. I delete them and empty the recycle bin but they keep reappearing. Is there some service on my Win 7 machine I need to delete to prevent this from happening? Space is at a premium at this point.

Also, I have deleted the C:\Cygwin directory so that doesn't exist. I also removed any registry settings associated with Cygwin.
