I have a 2008 Server running Terminal Services, all has been working since Monday. THe only error i'm getting in Event viewer is the following..

The Desktop Window Manager was unable to start because a composited theme is not in use.

I've researched the error and it states that its the enabling of Aero, I disabled it. The users still not able to login. Does Aero enable itself with every user that logs into the TS server? If so how can I disable it in Local Group Policy, I wasnt successful in finding anything on the web.

I found this link, and set everything to classic.. I'm still getting the error, does it enable this feature on every profile and have to be done every user that logs in??
