After hours of messing around with procmon, I fixed this problem on my machine.
I discovered I was getting Access Denied in the registry for the svchost.exe
that contained the terminal service, of course running as user "Network
Service." This was very widespread (many different keys in HKCR and
HKLM\Software), and my registry permissions matched a working machine. So, I
fixed it by adding "Network Service" to the "Administrators" group. (Yes,
Here is the command:
net localgroup "Administrators" "NT Authority\Network Service" /add
I had a different problem earlier this month where adding "Local Service" to
the Adminstrators group was the fix. I found the method in this article:
I can only assume the problems are related. Now I've totally undermined the
sercurity of my system by adding these service accounts to the Administrators
group, but I could find no other fix... (They are not designed to be in that
group per http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/is...1/12/XPKernel/
If anyone has any other suggestions, I'm open to them. This seemed to stem
from one of these patches, because Terminal Services ceased to function after
Removing the patches did not seem to fix it.
I hope this all helps... be careful!
