Stuck at Login Screen with Remote Desktop

Hi,
While accessing Remote Desktop if if I lose my Internet connection for any reason, and then in next attempt the login screen just gets stuck at the 'Log On to Windows' screen. I doesn't 'Freeze', as I can cancel just fine. But I can't login again until the machine is rebooted.

Please help

Try one of the VNC programs. Real VNC, Ultr@VNC, etc.

Re: Stuck at Login Screen with Remote Desktop

If using windows vista :

If this happens within a remote app or at the login screen, you're left in a peculiar situation where you can't login or access the start menu to fix the situation. I found a pretty easy fix below.

  1. Pressing the 'u' key should open some sort of Accessibility menu.
  2. Choose On-Screen Keyboard and there you can toggle the Windows key until it becomes 'unstuck'.

Has the server/computer that you are connecting to been rebooted recently? If not you try that or you may go into a command prompt and run "net stop" and "net start" then try to connect again.
