Is this safe?
Don't really want to run it if it's going to ruin my computer, not worth the risk, especially with the amount of spam we have been getting recently!
Anybody able to shed any light on this?

You probably have to enable telnet in Programs & Features>Turn Windows Features On and Off>tick Telnet
