Makes sense to me.

I only ever experienced the issue in a full TS environment (well XenApp
actually). But it could happen either to RDP or ICA connections. Rarely
both at the same time – so you could be limping along with RDP broken and
ICA fine, or vice versa. In the event log there would be an error message
along the lines of an RDP (or ICA) component (a .dll) was
missing/corrupt/illegal – so the service was unavailable. There was a
suggestion in other KB articles that AV was modifying  the file in some way
and it should be excluded. This was not the case.

I found the only way to fix the problem was to rebuild up until I came
across the patch.

Does this apply to any server (Windows 2003)? i.e. terminal services as
opposed to a pure terminal server. We're occasionally seeing a down RDP-Tcp
listener after a reboot but not just on terminal servers. Curiously those
that are terminal servers usually have the ICA-Tcp listener up !!. Seems to
happen more on our VMs (VMware) but last week I had it on a physical box.
It's not 100% clear from the KB below.

Let me know if any of that didn't make any sense.

on every time I reboot I get a session down.

I have just finished rebuilding a couple of servers and have one still to

So I tried patching another one and same problem, has anyone identified the
patch or had similar issues lately.

This there were 30 patches in all, going to have to try and identify which
