Remote Desktop with Wide Screens?

I have been using PCA for years to remotely configure/support my clients One of my clients has several office PC's that he wants to use from home and PCA is just too slow for doing any type of real work. Trying RDP seemed like a possible solution. Note We converted his office last year to 21" wide screens ISSUES: 1) RDP 6.0 connects and reformats the host desktop to match the Clients settings (all xp pro sp2 host and client) ... the issue is when the Client goes back to the office in the morning after an RDP session, his Screen settings are all messed up. RDP appears to be changing the themes, desktop, screen saver, appearance and resolution settings. Does anyone know how to get the host to restore these settings to a user defined default after RDP disconnects? 2) After a user connects with RDP and then disconnects, PCA can connect but I have to reboot the host machine before I can get a screen showing in PCA ... I suspect this may be related to issue 1 Note also that we have one host set for using TSWEB because that user only has a W2K client machine at home ... this host appears to be unaffected by these 2 issues but I haven't been able to determine what the difference is as all the office PC's have the same H/W OS and Software. The only difference I can determine is that I have IIS running on this PC but don't follow what IIS would add to the screen functionality

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The default is to go back to the original resolution. The only reason it would not would be bad video drivers or an installed script that runs via gp on log off.

I would update my video drivers and I would try using the newest mstsc.exe downloaded from Microsoft’s website or copied off of a windows 2003 server.
