Problem with Git in windows 10, security problem?


Dear Forum.
My Git application throws so many error messages I dont know where to start. It mainaly seem to complain about multiple cygwin.dll files but I have only one cygwin.dll on my computer. I have tried different solutions opening up ASLR in windows defender and made several different exceptions in windows defender to no avail. Last trials was shutting down all safety as firewall and defender, everything, but git application still dont work. After searching I found a thread at stackoverflow recommending removing git, clean with ccleaner and reinstalling. So now my harddrive is littered with git files from two different versions of git as I managed to test the reinstall between a update which now locked git completely as it doesnt clean up old git files at un-install (see attached screen shot). Im confused, how can a program for copying files be so problematic ?

Im having difficult understanding why a application for software developers requires safety to be switched off when copying files for developing software, it is defying purpose.

Below the latest error messages. What confuses me with this text here is that I dont have any x:\cygwin folder, the only cygwin1.dll to be found is located at : C:\Users\pema\AppData\Local\Android\Sdk\emulator\bin64

This problem is probably due to using incompatible versions of the cygwin DLL.
Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
and delete all but the most recent version. The most recent version should
reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where ‘x’ is the drive on which you have
installed the cygwin distribution. Rebooting is also suggested if you
are unable to find another cygwin DLL.
