    [help request] action center cygwin question


    i'm mike. so,, i've built a new pc. not entirely new, it's two months old i guess. on the action center, there's a notification saying to solve a problem with cygwin.

    what's cygwin? i don't remember installing any program that has cygwin on it. i can SS my list of installed programs or anything you guys need. being ocd doesn't help with this cygwin problem.

    that's all, fairly minor really.

    oh im using windows 8.1 with i5-4570 and r9 270x. the r9 270x artifact-ed, i took it off and now im using the intel driver vga from the motherboard. i can't rmmbr since when the cygwin noty has been there though?

    probably after i took my r9-270x but still keeping AMD CCC. is that the source of the problem?
    anyway kindly appreciate any help.

Action Center says problem with Cygwin
Awhile back Action Center was reporting that there was a problem with Cygwin, then that disappeared. I'm not remembering if that was only before 8.1, which I updated to from 8 in late October. In any case, the past couple of days I've been getting the same Action Center message in the Sys Tray...
