I have a clean install of Windows XP, whenever you try to connect to it using RDP the connection pops up for about a second and then just disappears.  Event logs aren't being very helpful, though you might have seen this before.  

Remote Desktop is enabled, Terminal Services service is running.

Thanks.

To resolve the problem use Regedt32.ext tool, and go to the following registry key:

1). HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
2). Check if you find registry value, GinaDLL [REG_SZ]
3). If yes, export Winlogon key into a winlogon.REG file for backup then delete GinaDLL registry value and reboot the system.

This might help.

Kind regards.

Didn't find GinaDLL.  Also, if it helps, I can telnet to localhost 3389 successfully so I don't believe it's firewall related, actually there isn't any security software installed yet.  I can RDP out from the pc that is having the issue but I cannot RDP to it from any computer (I've tried several).  The Remote Desktop Connection screen just pops up for about a second and then goes away.

Thanks for your help on this.

Problem was issue with Video Card.  After uninstalling the NVIDEA card, I was able to RDP to it.  Working great now.  Thanks.
