Terminal Services not listening on 3389

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi all,

I have a client with a Server 2008 SP2 Standard machine. Terminal Services starts, but is not listening on 3389. The event viewer lists the following error:

Terminal Service start failed. The relevant status code was No such interface supported

I've searched through every possible solution on the internet, and no resolution. I've also tried adding the Network Service account to local admins - this did not fix it.

Please help!
