cygwin ssh setup permissions error


I am trying to run ssh-host-config on cygwin on my windows machine to set up an ssh server. Here is a complete transcript:

How do I get my permissions back to how they need to be and how do I fix the original problem I was having?

Here's the whole thing:

It looks like there are still some permissions problems. It made a new account called 'privileged server', and I also tried starting sshd from there, but got the same problem, and it didn't report an error.

I am thinking that this is one of the main causes of the problem. What do I type here?
