Some of our users are getting disonnected while connected to the terminal server.  When I check the log, there's an Event ID 50
"The RDP Protocol Component "DATA ENCRYPTION" Detected an Error..." error message

So I did the following:
Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
Under this registry subkey, delete the following values: • Certificate
• X509 Certificate
• X509 Certificate ID
Quit Registry Editor, and then restart the server.

However, users are still getting disconnected.
The users that I know of that are being disconnected use HP5500 thin client.

Windows 2003 SP1 Terminal server
License = user mode
Encryption = client compatible
