RDP with local resources God Mode causes explorer to crash?

Ok, so I noticed something interesting today. I have Windows 7 Pro x64 and when I connect to any of my servers(Server 08 OSs) using Remote Desktop with local resource C: being shared and open C: of my PC through the RDP session, explorer.exe on the server crashes. I've ran into this before and used means of getting the files from one place to another but today I found the culprit, GodMode. I had GodMode on my Win7 box and when viewing the my files through RDP, it get to GodMode then crash explorer. So I deleted the GodMode folder on my box and tried again. Sure enough it works as expected. Has anyone out there experienced and know of a fix? I honestly don't care if there isn't one because I don't even use GodMode, I simply had it just because I could. I just thought I'd bring to attention that's it's an issue with the two. Thanks in advance.

GodMode is not advised by Microsoft, btw: it's just the 'all tasks' folder.

For a surprise RDP depends on acceleration level and primary desktop video driver on THE SERVER.

@gerwinjansen, I know it's advised and I don't have a problem not using it. I never used it anyways, I just found it odd that it created a problem. It's not like it's a 3rd party software creating the issue.

@gheist, Care to explain how the video driver would have anything to do with this?

Thank you both for your responses.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Ok, sounds good. I don't think I'll get any real answer to this so I'm just going to call it done. I'll split the points 50/50. Thanks again.
