Remote Desktop Connection Error

For a week now, when I try to use my Remote Desktop on my Windows 7 Pro SP1 computer to connect to any computer, I get the following error "An authentication error has occurred. The requested security package does not exist. Remote computer:xxxxxx."

The only thing that has changed is typical, recent automatic updates and I did use this computer to help me with a recent migration from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011. I have googled this and found a registry change which I did and had no success. I also did a system restore to a few weeks back and no change.

Any additional help is appreciated.

are you talking about this key?

HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\control\LSA\security packages

Adding the "tspkg" value solved it.

in Remote Desktop Connection window..

click the small arrow icon  (in left bottom)
click on advanced tab
under "if server authentication fails"  -- select "warn me" or  "connect and don't warn me"
