Glad to hear you straightened that out Tom! Sometimes that's all it takes is to be a good listener.
Now, how do I create a service in 7 that starts my listener automatically...hmmm!
I'm thinking if you go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features, look to the left, and you'll see "Turn Windows Features On or Off".

Scroll down a bit and you'll see checkboxes for Telnet, Client, Server, and TFTP Client.
Once you have what you need, then go to Services, and put them on auto.
