When I run a remote desktop session to my work computer, the redraw rate is very slow. Specifically, when I type text into a window, the area around the text flickers for about 10 seconds after I type, slowly adding letters. I get the same lag effect when I scroll up/down in a window. Strangely enough, I only notice the redraw rate within specific applications (like Visual Studio).
However, when I connect to my work computer over remote desktop from my laptop (another pc on the same network as my home computer), it works great. So it's definitely an issue on my home computer.
The only things I've changed that I know of since the last time it worked good (a few weeks ago are)
- Installed a new video card (nVidia geforce 8400 GS, with current drivers)
- Made my logon account a restricted user.
Home Computer running XP Pro
Home Laptop running Vista
Work Computer running Windows 7 Ultimate
Any suggestions are most appreciated!
