When a user launches Remote Desktop, the host computer freezes

When a user launches a Remote Desktop session, his host computer, which is Windows XP SP3, freezes up.  It is a new and powerful Dell machine, and it does not matter whether we launch Remote Desktop from outside the network, or inside the network.  Could this be a problem with Symantec Endpoint Protection?  What else could be causing this?  We have a pretty standard network configuration, and I have never had any problems with Remote Dekstop before (my users are successful with it all the time).  We can cause this problem launching Remote Desktop from either Vista or XP.

Thanks for responding promptly.  Windows Firewall was running.  I shut it down in services, tried to log in using another machine on our LAN, and the host system completely froze once the RDP session was launched (in other words, once network credentials were entered).  I have tried to do RDP on other internal systems as well, and don't get this issue, so I don't think it is related to our Symantec EndPoint Protection.

Yes:  The card is an nVidia Quadro FX 570.  I am downloading and installing updated drivers right now.  Any further thoughts?

Worked perfectly, but after registry change, first  you need to reboot host PC.

This worked perfectly for me too!
I have an NVidia Quadro NVS 290 card set for double-monitors.  If anyone knows the right person at DELL to pass this along to, they would probably be grateful.

Thanks!
