Cannot RDP connect to Server wiht client pc using Windows 7.0

We have a dedicated server at SingleHop that using Windows Server 2008 32bit.

We connect to the server using RDP.

However, we recently purchased new PCs with Windows 7.0.  

With XP we could and still can RDP connect to the server via IE web browser.

However, with the Window 7 machines we cannot.  When we attempt to login we are direct to a white screen and then get a Licensing Protocol error.  This only happens from the Windows 7 machines.

Two possible fixes:
1) Add the TS to the trusted sites zone in IE (ip or name).
2) Enable the Administrator account ( net user administrator /active:yes ), login to it and connect to the TS which will allow the proper registry keys to be created, then disable the Admin account ( net user administrator /active:no )
