I am running Windows 7 and for some reason whenever I remote into my pc using Windows remote utility I can’t log back in through the consul it just gives me a blank screen but I can continue to remote into it the only way to get back I is to reboot. Is there something I can do to stop this from happening?
Thanks

Is this within a corporate environment? I'm assuming this is RDP? Have you got RDP permissions to the machine you're trying to connect to? Have you enabled RDP on the target machine?

Yes I am using RDP I have administrative rights and the pc is in a corporate environment, I have no problem with using RDP the problem is after using it I can’t get back into my PC from my desktop. I try hitting keys on the keyboard and moving the mouse but the screen stays black but I can still go back in and access it through RDP. It did work at one time and it doesn’t matter what OS I connect from it happens with any system I use to connect to my PC.
