In an interesting bit of serendipity, while trying to launch the unix spreadsheet calculator (usually with the command `sc`), it launched instead a Cygwin specific program called sc.exe. This interfaces with the windows service controller which accesses daemons running on the cygwin host...i.e. Windows Services! Meaning queries using unix tools, e.g. grep can be done on the whole suite of host machine services. just try `sc query` or find out more at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754599(v=ws.10).aspx
I would suspect those are unicode characters. Maybe you introduced some invisible symbols without noticing and the console is picking them up. I would delete the folder and try to create it again. I can't help you further.

My name is franklin, I enjoy long walks on the beach, pina coladas, and couples' dances.
But in seriousness. I'm a law school student with too many interests and not enough time. I've studied history, mathematics, music and computer science with varying degrees of depth and success. In my free time I cycle and strength train.
