Remote Desktop Connection Disallows Credential Saving

I'm using a Windows 7 PC to connect to a Windows Server 2008 R2 via Remote Desktop Connection. I'm not being allowed to save credentials.  I get the following message:
“Your system administrator does not allow the use of saved credentials to log on to the remote computer (IP Address or host name) because its identity is not fully verified.  Please enter new credentials.”

I've already tried without success the typical Google solution, to use gpedit.msc to Enable the four "Allow Delegating..." policies with the TERMSRV/* setting and then using gpupdate /force to apply the new policy.

Looking forward to typing my password less often in the near future. :)

Are you the administrator on the server? If not, have you asked the admin to allow saving credentials?

Yes, I am the Admin but wasn't thinking in terms of the server policy. I will checkout Remote Desktop Connection Manager. But I'm also curious if another option might be to Enable Credentials Saving, but is it possible to define it for me, and possibly a few others, individually? I use a PC, but most of our users connect with thin-clients that are not password protected, hence my having the system policy disallowing Credential Saving.
