Hi, I have a windows 7 SP1 laptop and when I try and connect via RDP to anything it crashes with Remote desktop connection has stopped working and this in the event log

Faulting application name: mstsc.exe

I have run sfc / scannow which found errors (not sure if this was one of them) but still no good. Really need to start using this??
