Yes, WX64LG is the machine name.

$ net user sshd /delete
The command completed successfully.

$ net user cyg_server /delete
The user name could not be found.

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2221.

$ cygrunsrv -Q sshd
$ ssh-host-config -y -w XXXXX

...

*** Info: This script plans to use 'cyg_server'.
*** Info: 'cyg_server' will only be used by registered services.
*** Query: Create new privileged user account 'WX64LG\cyg_server' 
(Cygwin name: 'cyg_server')? (yes/no) yes
*** Info: User 'cyg_server' has been created with password 'XXXXX'.
*** Info: If you change the password, please remember also to change the
*** Info: password for the installed services which use (or will soon use)
*** Info: the 'cyg_server' account.

*** Warning: Expected privileged user 'cyg_server' does not exist.
*** Warning: Defaulting to 'SYSTEM'

I will see if I can figure out why the Cygwin name is failing to become 
WX64LG+cyg_server and get back to you.
