Resource Monitor on 2008 RDP Server

I have a 2008 R2 RDP server, and while trying to trouble shoot some issues I tried to open the Resource Monitor from the Performance tab on the Task Manager.  When I open it, all I get is a transparent window that maintains an image of what ever you put in front of it.  This server is a new fresh install, replacing an older server which also had the same issue.  Is there a way to get the Resource Monitor to work on an RDP server?  It works fine on all other servers.  Thanks!

it is not an RDP problem...
i use Resource Monitor within many 2008R2 RDP and 2008R2 Citrix Servers.
Never seen your issue.

Thank you Dirk.  I thought it might be related to the RDP service since I have 2 RDP server that it doesn't work on and all other non-RDP servers it works fine.  A little more digging , and I think I have found the problem to be with the Administrator profile, as I can get it from another user account.  I will try recreating the user account later, probably this weekend, as this server gets used late at night.

Try to logon as different administrator.
So you can see if eessource Monitor is working and delete the profile from first administrator.
No server restart is needed.

Thanks, I will give that a try.  It does work from a different admin account.

Recreating the Administrator's profile did fix the issue.  Thanks for your help.
