Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

I am experiencing something i can not reproduce on other computers at our office. I work as the admin from a remote office and use a vpn connection with the Administrative Remote Desktop console to connect to workstations at the head office. Up until recently, all of this has worked without any problems. Now all of a sudden one machine will disconnect about a minute after supplying the login credentials. There is no error message displayed, nothing warning you that "you dont have sufficient rights" or "local policy does not permit". The screen goes from logging on, to black, to disconnecting. This happens both, when I try connecting as the local user or administrator. I know that the users do have access to connect, so that is not the problem.

Now, if i have the user restart the computer, and then i connect before they log on, then Remote Desktop works. however, when the user leaves for the day, and does a Shutdown, Log Off. The problem reoccurs.

I don't know what is causing this disconnection to happen, and can not find any other cases of people experiencing this sort of problem.

TIA,

Matt

Re: Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

Sounds like your user may be infected with something that starts with his login that does not want you to log in. Make a Hijackthis log when logged in first and have the user make one when you are not logged in. Then post both logs in a reply.

Ron

Installing HijackThis:

Click http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/HJTsetup.exe

OR

http://security-central.us/downloads/HJTsetup.exe

to download HJTsetup.exe

1. Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
2. Open Notepad > Click on Format > Uncheck Word Wrap, if checked.
3. Double-click on the desktop icon for HJTsetup.exe and by default it will automatically install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
4. Continue to click Next to accept the default settings in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the "Select Additional Tasks" dialogue.
5. Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next and continue accepting the default suggestions.
6. At the final dialogue box click Finish and HijackThis (HJT) will launch.
7. Click on the "Do a system scan and save a logfile" button"; A log showing the results should open in Notepad.
8. Click on Edit > Select All (or CTRL+A) then click on Edit > Copy (or CTRL+C) to copy the contents of the log.

Re: Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

Hi Matthew,

It will be interesting to see what the logs show.

Without knowing more about your use of policy this is just a thought. Are you running the UPHClean tool from microsoft? If not, you might want to try it as it may help in other ways too.

Re: Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

Hi Ron,

I downloaded HJT and have pasted the report below. this report was based on me rebooting the computer and logging in through RD after a reboot.

Re: Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

I don't see much in your log.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [mMouse] MouPter.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SetMou] SetMou.exe

These are probably the remote mouse tho it is not something I see very often and google doesn't have many hits. Appears they live in C:\windows. Can you look in the folder and see if the files show up? If you hover over them it should say who makes them. Or you can rightclick on them and look at the properties.

I also wonder why I see two
C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe
and why I see
C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe
in the processes list (it's usually running just not visible)

but I suppose it's because you are coming in remotely and your user has logged in too.

Can you get the user to make an HJT log too (preferably when you are not logged in)? The HKCU entries are specific to a user and may change depending on who is logged in.

You might also look in the Event Viewer and see if there is an event that corresponds to your login failure. That may tell us something.

Check the Event logs for errors:
Start, Run, eventvwr.msc, OK then select System. Look for red marked files that have a time stamp about the time of the failed login. Open the event then click on the bottom of the three buttons to copy the text. Move to a reply and Edit, Paste. Repeat for any other different errors that happened about the same time. Please don't go back to the beginning of time and no events from a Safe Mode boot. Repeat for Application and Security. If your PC speaks something other than English don't translate it unless it doesn't use the Latin alphabet and then please include the timestamps.

Re: Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

Maybe if you can get the security log to work it will tell you why it drops you.

Start, (Settings), Control Panel> Administrative Tools>Local Security Policy>Local Policies>Audit Policy and Audit for both Success and Failure.

Re: Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

A few things.

WUAUCLT was running on the first log. WUAUCLT ONLY runs when the system is trying to do Microsoft updates.

System is still running IE6.

I'm guessing that the workstation may be in a "wedged" state. Probably someone selected "Install updates amd shutdown" when rebooting the system, and some of the updates did not finish correctly (partial install).

By now, IE7 should have been prompted for an install, but it hasn't been installed.

The machine may have to be brought up under the local admin logon, and the updates applied manually. Have them also select CHKDSK to run at the next reboot, and then reboot the system.

Oh... Last note. Make sure that Windows Defender is the RTM (released) version, and NOT still the Beta release.

Let us know how it works out.

Re: Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

hi all. just an update on this. after rerunning the OS updates we were able to get to ie7, and all necessary patches. the user was then able to connect that night from home, woo-whoo you say. yes and no. two days later it was back to the same thing. logging on then being kicked off.

i also updated the M$ defender to the released version.

i will update further with information from the event viewer.

Re: Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

Hello Matthew!

I think is strange, a spyware can attack a remote connection services.

So, but you can try also with:

Spy-Bot and AdAware.
www.safer-networking.org/
www.lavasoft.de

There are free.

Re: Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

You could try MS's Port Query tool here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/832919

Check to see if Symantec or XP's firewall is blocking port 3389.

If a session is left on ( disconnected rather than loged off) "sometimes" the next connection is refused if the screen saver locks.

Is the disk allowed to sleep or power off?

Re: Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

Let's make sure nothing is hiding:

Download Blacklight trial from here:
http://www.f-secure.com/blacklight/

Hit "I accept." It will take you to the download page.
Download blbeta.exe and save it to the Desktop.
Once saved... double click blbeta.exe (you may not be able to see the .exe) to install the program.
Click Accept Agreement and click Scan
This app may trigger a warning from your antivirus. Let the driver load.
Wait for it to finish.
If it displays any items...don't do anything with them yet. Just hit exit (close)
It will drop a log on Desktop that starts with fsbl....big number

Please post contents of log in your next reply.

Re: Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

Matt,

we have noticed here that google toolbar and google desktop have had serious impacts on alot of the programs we run here in our office. you may want to try uninstalling them and see if your user is able to connect then. one other thing might be to verify that the users profile is not time restricted.

Re: Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

Thanks Tony. I will remove the toolbar (desktop is not installed on any computers), and keep an eye out. I am still experiencing this problem too. however its intermittent now. if i have someone manually power off (hold donw the power button) the computer and start it back up i can connect and log in.

Re: Remote desktop disconnects after logging in.

Hi All,

bringing life to this topic.

i have continued to have sparatic problems with remote desktop. the same problem infact. and i think i now know what was causing it.

It seems/appears that whenever a windows update is ready for install (OS Updates), the user can not connect to the computer via remote desktop. the only way is to have the computer physically turned off then back on.

how this works i don't know. but this appears to be the case on multiple computers, over multiple different networks.
if you dont ask, you will never know :)
