I did the steps and when I did the netstat after rebooting 
I did not see the port 23.
The event log also does not have anything unusual.

Anyway the original problem in firing up inetd as an Administrator which I 
understand is not sufficient. I thought the permissions are not sufficient and 
you have to somehow look like the SYSTEM itself.
