Hi,

I assume that the "Certificate Installation msg" in question is a certificate error / warning? if this is the case, then I suspect that the certificate for remote desktop would have expired on that machine (where you are trying to RDP). Is the same issue happens when you access from another machine? or accessing another computer from this machine.

Start>>search>>type sysdm.cpl>>"Allow connections from computers running any versions of Remote Desktop" - Is this enabled?

Make sure that the certificate is valid and not expired, you can check this from Certificate MMC. Start>>run>>mmc>>File>>Add/Remove snap-in>>Select Certificates>>Add>>Computer account>>Local computer>>Expand the Certificates and locate to "Remote Desktop" folder>>Certificates>>Is it valid / expired?

Let us know how you get on.
