I need to downgrade my Remote Desktop on my Windows 7 PC due to Remote Control Problems on the RD Server. Everytime I try to remote control someone from my Win 7 Machine (which has RDC Versin 6.1.7601 installed), they get disconnected. When I do it from an XP Machine ( which has RDC Version 6.0.6001 installed), it works fine. I cannot find a solution for this nor can I figure out how to uninstall RDC on my Win 7 Machine.

You cannot uninstall from add/remove programs or Windows features but there are hacks to remove some versions using the $uninstall files in the Windows folder.  However I am doubtful it is the RDP client but perhaps more the PC, or if it is on a different network the network/modem/router.

I would be tempted to upgrade to the latest cleint version 8, rather than backtrack.
