Github for Windows bundles msysgit and openssh, so if it works there it
means there's still a configuration error on your side.
Note that you can point Github for Windows towards other non-Github
repositories. You can also use the command line Git that bundles with
Github for Windows. If this works for you, I don't see what the problem is.
Anyhow, if you want concrete suggestions, you have to give us some concrete
description of your environment, the steps you made and the error messages
you got. Saying "I tried 50 times" is not helping.
