Remote desktop works in the administrator profile in XP but fails to connect in a user profile on a computer. Other users in the company work OK, and other users on the same computer work with not problems connecting. Only this one user will not work.

Is it part of a domain?

Is the user a part of the remote users group?

Can the user remote to other locations?
