Windows 7 Ultimate:  All of a sudden 1 user cannot log in remotely as he has in the past.

I have checked the remote access and his username is not there.  Cannot setup his user name for remote.  Has several things on his page so cannot delete user.  Can these items be transferred to a new user setup on the computer?  I have run scans for spyware, virus, etc.  still same issue?

Why can't you setup his username for remote--what happens when you try to? Are you working with local user accounts or domain accounts?

When I go into remote users, his name does not show up.  I can add other users, etc and all is fine but it is with this one user that has always been able to access remote that quit working.
