Correct. So after ssh-user-config didn't work, I removed the .ssh directory
in my homedir to erase the keys it created. So I am using password
authenticaiton, but it never gets far enough to ask me for a password of
Should I remove the keys that ssh-host-config installed too for kicks?
Maybe I'll try that although I'm not sure what it'll accomplish, other than
sshd to recreate them when it starts up again.

Well I have been doing this all from RDP (TS) and we do have an antivirus
program (nod32) and another firewall program installed. I've disabled both
of these as well and still had the problem but just in case there were any
weird processes still running covertly, I tried booting into Safe Mode with
Networking and working from the console (instead of RDP). Sadly, it still
had the exact same problem.
Maybe I'll try reinstalling Cygwin fully from Safe Mode with networking
although again, I'm not sure how much it'll help....but willing to try just
about anything at this point.
Thanks, I Appreciate your continuing help.
