 I think this will help.

How can I un-register the HyperTerminal client on Windows 2000 once it’s been set as the default telnet client?

The default telnet client is referenced in the registry key below. In this example, it shows that HyperTerminal is the default client:

      HKEY_Classes_Root/telnet/shell/open
      command:REG_SZ: C:\Program Files\Windows NT\hypertrm.exe /t %1
      (where C:\ is the systemdrive.)

To revert back to the command line client, set the open key to the following value:

command:REG_SZ: rundll32.exe url.dll,TelnetProtocolhandler %1

I found this from microsoft when it was explaining about a vulnerability about Hyper terminal. From this, I am guessing you shouldn't even delete that entity. You should just change the directory to the telnet client you are using. You might have to use a parameter like they have for hyperterminal. That depends on your client though.

Good Luck,
Leventis
