windows/svc: use separate (and more descriptive) service names in tests

Notably, the DisplayName field was set to the same thing in both
sys.TestExample and mrg.TestMyService, which may explain the collision
reported in golang/go#59298.

Moreover, the adjective ”my” conveys no information whatsoever — we
shouldn't use it in tests or examples.

Also skip the tests that install services if GO_BUILDER_NAME is not
set, to reduce the likelihood of 'go test all' in a user's working
directory being mistaken for a malicious or compromised program.

Fixes golang/go#59298.
