Remote Administration High CPU

After installing the Remote Desktop Session Host role on a Windows Server 2008 R2 server, and applying the latest patches, whenever I remote into it with Remote Desktop Connection from my Windows 7 PC, the server jumps to 100% utilization with svchost.exe in control. (same thing happens when the user remotes into their application) I've searched for such issues and from MS website I saw hotfix 2750090 but the fix, applied to both the workstation and server, failed to resolve my issue (restarts were done on both ends and the patch was successfully installed).  There are no errors logged in the event viewer.  Best practices analyzer done on the server comes up clean.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to resolve this (other than contacting Microsoft)?  (wish I knew more about RDS)

Have you tried to remove the session host role and test regular administrative RDP access? High CPU even without the role?

If not, try to reinstall the session host role just to determine there is a direct correlation between the high CPU and the role itself.

Thank you and good suggestions.  Because of the critical nature of this, Microsoft was called in to help.  If resolved in a reasonable time, I'll post the results that corrected this.

Thank you again for your suggestion.  Microsoft provided me with this solution:  http://blogs.technet.com/b/askperf/archive/2012/03/06/performance-issues-due-to-inactive-terminal-server-ports.aspx   which fixed my problem.
