    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 soon after reboot. Since it has to do with Red Hat, I'm not sure what to make of it. A screenshot from a search for all mentions with my file manager is attached. Any ideas? Thanks,
