Terminal Session is disconnected without error message right after login

We have a Terminal Server (Windows Server 2003) and it is doing strange things. Straight after you login, it'll briefly show the 'Loading Personal Settings' screen, and then disappear and close the session altogether, without any error messages. It works ok if you login as console.

There doesn't appear to be any errors in the Event Logs either.

Any ideas?

Do you have a program that is starting automatically when the TS session is established? How is the bandwith between your client and TS server (if the TS box is external). Also, when you reconnect using the same username password, does your logon start fresh or do you continue from where you left?

Have you looked at the settings on session tab I think.. like what to do with disconnected clients, or what do to when you max session limit is reached etc.



Sorry, we found that the problem was a result of a strange trojan virus. Thanks for your help anyway.
