Remote Desktop connection (RDC) Stopped working and I can't get it to work again
Posted on 2009-05-11
I have a windows XP PRO PC that was using RDC without any problems for many years and then recently the PC got infected with a couple of adware programs that have been removed and since then I cannot connect remotely to this PC no matter what I try.
I had some problems with uninstalling some programs while taking care of the infection and eventually had to remove and re-install ".net framework 1.1 through 3.5" and Windows live Onecare.
So since the PC has been clean it's a NO GO for RDC on the PC.
I've changed RDP port numbers, checked the firewall settings, I've even tried connecting to it using telnet but something is keeping me from connection to it.
I do get a reply when I ping the PC and I can connect from the PC to other PCs using RDC.
I already have the usual configured (ie. added the users under the remote tab in system , allowed remote connections to the PC, etc.) as I mentioned the connection worked perfectly for years.
I've looked for answers but have had no luck.
Any help would be greatly apreciated.
Thank you in advance.
