Windows XP RDP will log in once then requires reboot

First the change to the network.  We installed SBS 2008.  Why that causes this issue, I am not sure.  It may have nothing to do with it, but...

I have a Windows XP box that until recently was used by a remote office to gain access to our network.  Now, it allows the first logon, but regardless of whether you log out, or disconnect, the second try to login without a reboot fails. The failure screen comes up quickly too.  No waiting like it cannot find the computer, it instantly fails.  

The error message is "This computer cannot connect to the remote computer.  Try connecting again.  If the problem continues, contact the owner of the remote computer or your network administrator."

1) have you installed the latest RDP client/ server on the machines ?
