remote desktop

Several of our newly XP Pro/SP3 installed Dell PCs refused to make remote Desktop connection to other PCs due to expired remote desktop utility. The intended connections are simply PC to PC, not server connection
Tried to download remote access update from MS site it kept saying the machines have already the built-in remote

copy mstsc.exe and mstscax.dll to c:\windows\system32 folder fro the other machine, if that does not work, try to remove SP3 and see if  RD works

Take the firewalls down, then try again.
If that doesn't work, I would remove SP3.

 I had tried to download the RD from that MS site, it said 'RD cannot be installed, your OS already has a built-in version'

 I have just removed the SP3, the PC seems confused & freezing. I am going to re-istall new Win XP with SP2 and see if that solves that problem

Thanks guys for your input

I don't know why these  Dell PCs we have came with Win XP Pro SP1 with the 'Pre-release version of RD that have expired. And, when you install SP3, RD would not run, because it has expired and suggests you download new version that still will tell you it has expired

Yes, SP3 was the problem to my Remote Desktop Connection. But, I had to re-install new Windows XP with SP2
I thought SP3 was supposed to help, not messing up the systems
Thank you, again
