Remote Desktop hangs upon logout on WinXP box.

Hello all,

One of our clients has a Windows XP machine that they use Remote Desktop on to get to a server.  Everything works fine during the session but every time they try to log out the empty session window hangs and won't close.  Only options is to end the process to get rid of it as clicking the X won't even close it.  The exception to this is that if you connect and disconnect right away without logging in the session will close properly.

I've tried doing a system restore to before she started having the issue, doing all the latest updates, and updating RDP to the latest version.  The problem persists.

Thoughts?  Thanks!

Are there any logout scripts enabled on the server?  If so, is it possible to disable them temporarily to see if that fixes the issue?

Do they have any drives or local media attached through the Remote Desktop session?

Do you mean on their own computer or on the server?  Their own computer doesn't have any external drives/media or any discs in the drive.

If you click Options before loggin in, and then the Local Resources tab, you should see something simlar to this: Local Resources
If you click More, you should see drives and smart cards like this:
 Local Devices
Is anything checked?

Oh I see now....  okay Smart Cards, Printers, and Clipboard was checked.  To test it out I unchecked those and tried and the session seemed to disconnect properly after use.  I asked the user to use it like this and I'd check back with her tomorrow, so I'll post up if it's still a problem.

Thanks!
