Cannot remote desktop into server 2008 R2 after applying service pack 1

I just applied Server Pack 1 to my Server 2008 R2 Enterprise server, but now I cannot RDP into it.  I have checked the Remote Setting and it is set for Less secure (where it was).  I even toggled it on and off, but still cannot get in.  This is happening to 2 of my 4 upgraded servers.  Any idea why?

I have worked on this problem on technet as well but I haven't found a solution to this problem it seems to affect Windows 2008 Server R2 and Windows 7 when installing SP1. I have tried multiple solutions but none have worked. I would recommend that you uninstall until there is fix for this issue posted by Microsoft.

Did any of the Remote Desktop Users members change?

I have found that using groups in remote settings Users doesn't always work. Try using individual users instead.

Make sure that the server is being seen by the client side. Check under Network to verify.
Sometimes you are able to ping, but not able to see the server.

Verify that the firewall is allowing RDP connections to the server.

Are you getting any RDC errors in EventViewer on either the Server-side or Client-side?

This is what I found:

The Remote Desktop Service was not started.  It is set to Manual, but on my other identical services, it is set to Manual, but the service is started.  So, I started the service and I was able to RDP.  I also restarted the server and it started again (still set to manual) and RDP worked.  I'm not sure why it didnt start the first time.
