Hi Experts

I am hoping this is an easy one,

I have user who remote desktops into their PC remotely,
Usually, it logs the current user off the system and then logs the remote user in
It is now creating a new session when the user logs in remotely and leaving the local user logged in

This is causing some issues and wants to change it back to how it was...

any ideas?

Thanks in advance

So TWO people are ACTIVELY using the computer?  Of it does a "switch user"

If you mean switch user, then that should be fine.  What issues are they having - this is normal behavior.

You could try disabling the Fast User Switching service.

Two users are actively working on the same account (very strange)
and if you close the session without logging off and come back on it asks which session to log back into

I ran system restore and took the system back a few week
Seems to have fixed the problem
Doesn't mean it won't happen again, interested to know what caused it

There is an unofficial tool out there that patches/changes termsrv.dll so it allows multiple session. This is not allowed by Microsoft because multiple RDP sessions are Windows Server functionality. System restore will have restored the original Windows 7 termsrv.dll
