Try running "cygcheck -svr | grep procps" and if it gives you nothing, that means that top is not installed. By the way, you may
want click the "Packages" link under http://cygwin.com and try to look for the utility you're missing. For example, you may type
"top.exe" (without the double-quotes, of course) at the search box. I got these results:
Found 4 matches for top.exe.

It appears to me that top is not gone. It seems that it was not installed in the first place. And FYI, you wouldn't find any hints
by reading the bash man page since the top is a different package from bash.

It's supposed to be in /bin (if you installed it).
