'ntsec' is on by default and is hence rendundant.  And I can't think of
a situation where a service would need a pty from a CMD.EXE session
(other than an interactive service specifically meant to open a CMD
prompt, but that's kind of rare), so 'tty' is redundant as well.  I have
neither of these set and all my services work fine (sshd, cron,
cygserver, apache, etc...)
