tramp on windows without access to cmd.exe

I'd like to use tramp to access files on remote servers via ssh/plink.  However, my Windows desktop is a corporate desktop that is locked down: can't access cmd.exe and cannot edit the registry.

When I try to open a remote file within emacs (/plink:address@hidden:~/), I get the error

"the command prompt has been disabled by your administrator"
"Couldn't find local shell prompt for (C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe)"

Is there an alternative?  Please note I have Cygwin with bash and such.  Would appreciate any workarounds.  Thank you!
