zone alarm service depency problem with sshd

I am trying to have sshd running on my Windows XP box. I have Zone Alarm 
installed, ver. 6.0.667.

I configured sshd with:
$> ssh-host-config

and started as a service:
$> cygrunsrv -S sshd
which promptly made Zone Alarm to ask if sshd should be allowed internet 
access. I allowed it's client as well as server access. And it worked 
from my other LAN PCs.

But then I noticed that after I rebooted the Windows XP box, I could no 
longer ssh to it from another computer even though the sshd service was 
running. Zone Alarm was blocking it. I had restart sshd service to make 
Zone Alarm ware to allow access to/from it.

A little google search resulted in making Zone Alarm service a 
dependency of sshd. So:
1. I removed sshd service using "cygrunsrv -R sshd"
2. I installed it again by making Zone Alarm service as it's dependency:
$> cygrunsrv -I sshd -p /usr/sbin/sshd -f "Cygwin SSH Demon" -y zlclient.exe

4. I rebooted the machine, but still couldn't connect to it via ssh. I 
noticed that sshd was not running!
3. So I restarted the service. But I get this error:
root@red ~
$ cygrunsrv -S sshd
cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: StartService:  Win32 error 1075:
The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion.

I tried chaning the name of the dependency service to "zlclient" but 
that did not make any difference.

Can anybody suggest where I am going wrong?
