    telnet.exe should be in the WINNT/system32 folder. Click Start/Run and type telnet to open the window.

    This is how I normally run telnet.

    When I run that now the window appears for a second and then bombs out leaving nothing, which isn't normal.

    Any ideas?

    I assume, then, that the same thing happens if you find telnet.exe in Windows Explorer and double-click it.

    What happens if you include the telnet address in the command? (for example: telnet 192.168.0.0)
