Problems connecting from specific client to specific server

Last Modified: 2016-03-06
This has me stumped!
Background: Win7 client, Win2kR2 server.
I have my normal user account (local admin) that I use to connect to database servers on my workstation.
I have an admin account (member of domain admin) that I use to RDP to servers.

Suddenly when I try to connect to a specific server from either SQL, ODBC setup or RDP it fails (or succeeds temporarily but with bad performance and an eventual boot).
I can go to another client and RDP without an issue to this server. I can RDP to other servers from anywhere no problem. Other users cannot RDP to the affected server from my workstation.

The issue seems to be between my workstation (any account/program) and this server.
The server and my client have been rebooted. The profile (C:\users\profilename) has been deleted on my worksation in case something was hanging around but the problem still exists.

Any ideas what this can be? The event logs on both the client and server don't offer up any obvious clues.
