Problems using remote desktop connection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm experiencing a weird problem when I'm connected to a Windows 2008 R2 Standard 64 bit server.
    My desktop appears in complete. There are no icons and when I click the start button, I don't see anything other than the right side of the popped up menu. The rest is all gray (not grayed out, just gray, no text where the All Programs is).

    I'm sure it's a security setting of Windows 2008 but how do I fix this problem?

    The user I'm using is a regular domain user which I added to the local administrators group of the Windows 2008 server I want him to access.

    Can any body help please?

    Thank you,

  • The GPEDIT you opened is local group policy. I do belive you have a domain policy. You need your administrator help on this matter.

  • It sounds like there is a group policy to hide some items. Run gpresult /r to check which group policy applies to the user.

  • Hello chicagotech,

    I can't do that. It tells me "The command prompt has been disabled by your administrator". I tried to fix that through the registry and when tried to launch regedit32 I got "Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator".

    I did get access to GPEDIT through the file system. But when I look at it, everything seems to be Not Configured.

    What else can I do?

    Thank you,
