Terminal Services- Multiple Down Sessions

I read about a similair situtaion in the knowledge base, but no answer was given. I already have the UPH cleanup service installed before this problem ever happened & the service is running fine. In my case, I have win 2003 server R2 installed & the down sessions will reach up to 128 then not allow anyone else to login through rdp. In the picture attached, there are a total of 68 down sessions and my terminal server is really slow. The only fix I have right now is to restart the server and these down sessions will all be gone, until they build up again in a few days. Also, if I right click on a down session to reset the session, it will not allow me to. The error says: "Session (x) reset failed. Error 7024 - The requested operation cannot be completed because the terminal connection is currently busy procession a connect, disconnect, reset, or delete operation."

Please let me know if you can think of anything. There has to be a fix for this but this is the only post that came close to my problem, with no resolution posted.

P.S. (All critical and personal data was changed in the picture and server names were changed to protect the innocent).

I found that the error was with my AntiVirus solution. Kaspersky was causing the whole thing to hang. Once I uninstalled it, it started working great! Wow.... just when I thought antivirus had their stuff together. Looks like I need tobe careful what antivirus I buy next time!
Try services.msc from CMD  restart terminal server , or stop for while and start and see if you can do batter

I know you have R2 and not the original version, but this KB article may still be worth investigating.
