I was following the tutorial on cygwin ssh server tutorial and I launched the cygwin terminal as administrator as I was instructed to, but then I get the error:

$ ssh-host-config

*** ERROR: There are still ssh processes running. Please shut them down first.

So I entered ps and got the results

$ ps
PID PPID PGID WINPID TTY UID STIME COMMAND
5048 4492 5048 5472 pty0 1003 22:21:27 /usr/bin/ps
4492 4548 4492 4828 pty0 1003 21:57:22 /usr/bin/bash
4548 1 4548 4548 ? 1003 21:57:22 /usr/bin/mintty

But if I kill all those processes won't that shut down Cygwin as well? So, how do I get around this?
