Is IE7 the problem, or is it really SP2?

no it is IE7 as it was working 100% till it gets IE7 update from Microsoft then the machine became not stable as it became too slow. I tried to remove the IE7 from the Add or Remove program but it is stopped when start to inspect system configuration.

Thanks

Try this:

In IE 7 >>Tools>>Manage Add-Ons>>Enable or Disable Add-Ons>>enable the Terminal Services ActiveX control.
