Dear cygwin
Would You please help me with my problem?
I have CYGWIN installed on windows server 2012 and i have configured sshd
and all things goes well, I can access my server over ssh but after a period
of time i have noticed that i can't access my server over ssh. So, I have
 tried to restart the sshd service manually but it gives the following error
which I found it in ssh log and  it says "/var/empty must be owned by root
and not group or world-writable." so i have fixed these with chown and
chmod, After that, I could connect to my server over ssh but it asks me for
password not connect with public key.
Please be informed that every time i Have the problem i do the same steps
and when it did not work i uninstall cygwin and install it again. 
But I got the same problem after period of time, So would you please Provide
me with a steady solution So I did not need  to uninstall and install CYGWIN
every time.

Best Regards
