ssh: connect to host localhost port 22: Connection refused

i am on windows-64 bit hp machne.
i installed first latest cygwin(from local directory) to run hadoop on windows,but forgot to install tcp_wrappers pacakge.
so i deleted everything in C drive related to cygwin,also .ssh folder & .bashrc.profile
& installed again cygwin freshly.

i follow this tutorial:-
