When anyone uses remote desktop connectiion and connects to the server, they are able to succesfully logon, however it stays at applying personal settings forever, and eventually the session ends.  This is a new problm that has just strted to occur.

Users were able to successfully logon prior to this and nothing has changed on the server.  Corrupt file maybe? Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.

Assuming you have SBS2003, "Anyone" should NOT be using remote desktop to connect to the server.  What are they doing this for?  Remote Desktop to the server is enabled ONLY for Administrative purposes.

Its SBS 2000, the "anyone" connecting into it would be the ceo and president of the company.  I'm not happy with the fact that they do this but its not my name on the sign.

If it's SBS2000, then that has the ability for Terminal Services in Application Mode... so while it's not a great thing... it is permissable.

At any rate, when a user logs on here, it uses their roaming profile.. which will copy anything they have in their documents, and perhaps even large files in their Temp Internet Files.  Check to see how large the profile folders are in Documents and Settings... and wherever your roaming profiles are stored.

Turns out a program that loads at login was the cause of the problem.  I turned all the programs that start off, systematically one by one using msconfig till I found the cause.  Thanks for the help though.
