Hi


I have a 2008 R2 terminal server and when we connect to terminal sessions using remote control the end user experiences a black flicker and the same again when we disconnect. We use this to manage and monitor staff activity how do I stop the flicker?

Many thanks

The flicker, per Microsoft, is by design.  

Your only option for RDP spying would be using VNC hooks, which doesn't work well on 2008 or greater.  (due to session zero limitations).  You'd be better off installing on end user workstations.

I have heard of using a program called refog.  Sounds bloated and expensive, but gives you that stealth spying capability.
