Missing Remote Desktop Dialog Box in System Properties Running Under Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 But I Can Still See Remote Assistance Dialog Box

    Question

  • Hello to everyone i am using Win 7 Ultimate SP 1 and when i go to system properties -> remote settings all i get is the remote assistance dialog box and i can't find the remote desktop dialog box. I can see the remote assistance dialog box but i can't see at all my remote desktop dialog box. Does anyone has any idea???????

    i have tried almost anything. I have opened exceptions in windows firewall for remote desktop. I started the remote desktop services manually but nothing happend, i still can't see the remote desktop dialog box and that's odd because i can see my remote assistance dialog box in system properties-> under the remote tab but as i said i can not see my remote desktop settings.

    Plz help.....
    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi,

     

    First, please try the SFC command to check if you any corrupted system files:

    If this issue persists, it is recommended to perform system restore to get back to a previous time point to check what the result is:

    Hope it helps.

  • I have the same issue, also Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 - there's no Remote Desktop pane on the Remote tab of System Properties.

    Additionally, the Remote Desktop Services service is running, but there's nobody listening on 3389/tcp.

    I've tried running SFC /scannow, but there was no change. I've disabled System Restore, so that's not an option. 

    This seems to be a relatively new issue, as I seen plenty of posts, but no answers. For me, RDP worked fine until a week or 2 ago. Not sure if updates were installed in the meantime, but I suspect so. Thanks for your help.

    Remote access in W7 Home Premium

    I was assured that my simple Windows 7 Home Premium (in instructions and by phone with MS phone callers) that no one could access my remote desktop without my permission and consent.

    I believed this, based upon MS assurances, and thought my problems were general hacking.  However, in the past two weeks, Norton Internet Security has provided me written evidence that I do indeed have an unwanted remote accessor.     

    Here is an entry from today’s history of Norton Internet Service:

    firewall rule was matched:

    rule name: default allow ssdp

    rule action: allowed

    rule severity: normal

    traffic details: (none)

    protocol: TCP (6)

    direction: inbound

    Local host: rumplestilskin

    Local IP:  (not included here)

    Local Service :Port (53076)

    remote host: (no id)

    remote IP: 96.17.108.120

    remote service: Port www-http(80)

    remote mac: --

    adapter index: 11

    Process information:

    process id 4

    process path: system

    I have numerous entries of rejection too because I have used Norton’s features to block entries of many hackers. The “Remote Desktop checkbox” is not on my Windows 7 anymore, but a MS tech told me last month it wasn’t supposed to be there anyway. Any ideas how to stop this in the registry?  Tks. bobpodes
