Ignore everything up to here.  All this stuff is added by Windows
and there's no way around this without lots of installing overhead.

This is the only relevant part of the event log entry which has been
produced by cygserver.

The first error message indicates an "access denied" error, which lets
me assume you're running cygrunsrv under a non-privileged account.

Unfortunately, from your cygcheck output it's not visible under which
user account cygserver is running.  Are you starting it via cygrunsrv?
Under the SYSTEM (LocalSystem) account?  The output of `cygrunsrv -LV'
shows that.  If it's not running under the LocalSystem account, please
change that and try again.
