For /etc/hosts, my guess is there's some network-related process running
that has it locked.  You could try rebooting before trying to remove the
file (or download the "handle" utility from sysinternals and see which
process is holding the lock).

As for /etc/lib, there is no such link on my system.  Where does it point
P.S. I'm assuming you simply used "\" instead of "/", or installed Cygwin
in "c:\".
