hydra in Cygwin problems.

Hello, attempting to use Hydra in Cygwin on Windows 7 to brute force my own email as a proof of concept.

Using this code:

 -l MyEmail@hotmail.co.uk -P '/cygdrive/c/Users/Me/Desktop/realuniq.lst' pop3.live.com -s 995 pop3


I get this consistently:

Hydra v7.6 (c)2013 by van Hauser/THC & David Maciejak - for legal purposes only

Hydra (http://www.thc.org/thc-hydra) starting at 2014-05-12 21:36:44
Syntax: hydra [[[-l LOGIN|-L FILE] [-p PASS|-P FILE]] | [-C FILE]] [-e nsr] [-o FILE] [-t TASKS] [-M FILE [-T TASKS]] [-w TIME] [-W TIME] [-f] [-s PORT] [-x MIN:MAX:CHARSET] [-SuvV46] [service://server[:PORT][/OPT]]

Options:
  -l LOGIN or -L FILE  login with LOGIN name, or load several logins from FILE
  -p PASS  or -P FILE  try password PASS, or load several passwords from FILE
  -C FILE   colon separated "login:pass" format, instead of -L/-P options
  -M FILE   list of servers to be attacked in parallel, one entry per line
  -t TASKS  run TASKS number of connects in parallel (per host, default: 16)
  -U        service module usage details
  -h        more command line options (COMPLETE HELP)
  server    the target server (use either this OR the -M option)
  service   the service to crack (see below for supported protocols)
  OPT       some service modules support additional input (-U for module help)

Supported services: asterisk cisco cisco-enable cvs ftp ftps http[s]-{head|get} http[s]-{get|post}-form http-proxy http-proxy-urlenum icq imap[s] irc ldap2[s] ldap3[-{cram|digest}md5][s] mssql mysql nntp oracle-listener oracle-sid pcanywhere pcnfs pop3[s] rdp rexec rlogin rsh s7-300 sip smb smtp[s] smtp-enum snmp socks5 svn teamspeak telnet[s] vmauthd vnc xmpp

Hydra is a tool to guess/crack valid login/password pairs - usage only allowed
for legal purposes. This tool is licensed under AGPL v3.0.
The newest version is always available at http://www.thc.org/thc-hydra

Example:  hydra -l user -P passlist.txt ftp://192.168.0.1

infact, this is exactly what comes up whenever I type 'Hydra' followed by anything. Help?

What have I screwed up? :P

Might that be it?
