I am banging my head against the wall here.  I feel like I've tried everything!  I have 2 Dell dual monitors (model e248wfp) and an ATI Radeon HD 4350 video card.

I previously remoted into my computer all of the time and now when I try, it just hangs at the login screen.  My computer got a virus and I had to re-image.  After the re-imaging, everything is great but RDP won't work.

A week ago, when I attempted to fix this issue, I downloaded the newest video card drivers and logged in and it totally worked.  Since then I have tried a million other times and it never works.

I am in desperate need of this for my job as I have to remote in a lot.

Any help is greatly appreciated.  I wish I could offer 10,000 points as this is what a resolution is worth to me!!!!  Plus, I've spent probably 10 hours on this issue, so if anyone can figure it out, I will consider you a genius.
