Installing cygwin (was openssh)

OK, I did install successfully, but I wanted to add some packages, and
all I get is three or four lines with a graphic -- the word skip and
two more graphics a name and a size. If I press the graphic to the
left of skip the word skip goes away and a version number replaces
it. If I press it again another version number replaces it.If I press
it again I get skip again. I cannot find a scroll arrow or a graphic
which would replace it any place. I am using full view -- or it says
full under the view button so I am not sure what is happening.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
