Host freezes on RDP session

Question: Host freezes on RDP session

I have been using RDP to connect from work to home machine. Lately, it has been locking up my host machine at home. It will come up with error that it cant connect even though it gets passed the password entry.

Anyone notice this? I am thinking video card drivers or something. SO I turned off my screen saver and set it to not turn my monitor off after a certain time.

OS- Windows 10 pro (host + remote machine) Fully updated on both machines.

Preferred Solution: Host freezes on RDP session

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Host freezes on RDP session

When you post like this you should include at minimum the OS and version of it that you use. Anything Microsoft related and you can most likely point your finger at a botched windows update for starters.

I am running lite version of Windows 7 SP1 x64 Ultimate which has RDP Session Host removed.
Can anyone point me towards which DLL files are necessary for it to work, possibly how and in which order to register them, and their dependencies?

(BTW, even though the installation source is from unofficial distribution (obviously), I upgraded my Win7 Pro key through WAU, so the installation is legit, just for clarification. )

Hello everyone,
I recently did a teamviewer session with a person. After that day, a teamviewer process would show up on my firewall as i started windows showing the name of a "macbook.XXX". I uninstalled Teamviewer but still this "MACBOOK" shows up in "windows host processes" when i start my computer. This person confirmed me he has a MacBook so I am pretty sure this is related to that teamviewer call. How do I fix this? And why does it make that connection when I start my laptop? Here is a screenshot of what happens.
The first in the list is the macbook i am referring to, the second in the list fully deleted is the name of my laptop.
what is happening?
thank you in advance for your help

I would suspect this shows as one of the exceptions added within the "Firewall" tab of Glasswire? If you never intend to use it again, you can click on the 'grey flame' icon on the left to block it, if it being there concerns you.

Simple question really, just wondering if it is possible to allow the user to watch what your doing on their PC when you've connected via a remote session.

i.e. I'm on PC A and I'm controlling PC B, but I want my colleague on PC B to be able to see what I'm actually doing (rather than just viewing the login screen / logging in and interupting my session).

If not, is there any FREE (and safe) software that does this.

Any help is appreciated.

As alluded to in the title, my PC freezes when I play pretty much any 3D application (especially games) where it freezes almost immediately forcing me to restart my computer using the reset button. Afte the computer finishes rebooting from this I can then run any application fine without it freezing - until the next session of using my computer. It doesnt matter whether I access the 3D app straight away from startup or after 1 hour of use, the freeze still happens for the first startup of any 3D app. The freeze can happen anywhere up to 30 or 40 minutes of playing a game - somewhat frustrating at times. I have checked as many drivers as I know how and there really are not many external bits attached to my pc, it has usb kb and mouse (logitech), usb data dongle and monitor. The crashes did not appear to be happening when I bought the computer and it was running windows xp, although I only ran xp for about a week before installing vista. The problem has occurred over a full install of vista, and more recently a full version, fresh install of windows 7.

Any help would be much appreciated,

Answer:Intermittent PC Freezes - only once per session though

Hi Matt,

Does this happen with particular games or just any game (or 3D app)?

When you say that the PC freezes, can you still see the image on the screen (ie, not a blue screen)?
Does the sound stutter?
How long have you tried leaving it to recover? Maybe the PC is doing something in the background?

Using Roxio 5 for burning CD. Been doing so for a long time. Use either Office Depot or Verbatum CD-R Recently I discovered that when adding data to a CD with previous essions on it, and it is getting close to the end, say about 75MB - 100MB from end data gets writen but then when it is finalizing the system freezes up and it does not complete the session. This is very annoying since I have to fetch a fresh CD and put all the data on it. I use CD as my main backup, and keep adding new data as it is generated .
Any Ideas

Answer:Roxio CD-R freezes at end of session

Try reinstalling Roxio then burn a new CD but this time use the 'test and record' option instead.

I can get on the internet just fine. But, getting off leaves my laptop frozen. The screensaver and system tray are still there as well as the ISP's icon. The icon is suppose to go away leaving the computer freed up. Yet, I have to power-button off and on to unfreeze it. It happens all the time.
First thought this was normal until reasoning set in. (new to pcing) "Why turn off a computer just to start it up again in order to use it"?
Talked to (e-mailed) ISP support quite awhile ago about it, and they said something about the graphics setting may be too high and to turn it down.
I was afraid to try anything, being new and all.
But, just for the record, I regularly use Adaware, Norton, delete temps and have defragmented. Use disk cleanup, too. I have all updates including XP's. Even tried the OS standby,restart, and turn off options instead of using netzero's toolbar "disconnect' button to get off the net properly. Same thing happens-the freeze. Keyboard is nonreponsive too until the restart. I close all windows as well beforehand as well.

I just recently had the MB and PS replaced in an Emachines computer running XP. When I got it back I am not able to connect to the internet but was able to before giving it to Geeksquad since it was a warranty replacement. My daughter can install and run her programs just fine, but the system locks up when I open IE or Firefox. The keyboard and mouse do not respond and I am not able to get to Task Manager to stop the application. My only way out of this is to turn off the computer and start it back up. I thought I may have a spyware issue, but I can not even get to the web to download the most recent version of spybot and Adaware. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have problem with session manager's session files.

The problem is:
The submitted storage data from firefox which is put between "storage":{ and its matching closing brace }
But in some of my session files there is non equal { and } under storage's braces.

I need to get storage data but in my case it is very hard to do programmatically because finding "storage":{ 's matching brace is impossible because of the non equal { and } in storage data.

My question: is there any character put before or after { and } like /{ or \{ to avoid confusion?

If there is not such thing, I think there could be different solution but i am not sure:
I look couple of my session files; after "storage":{...} there is ,_"formDataSaved" so i can get storage data in this example ... by looking between "storage":{ and ,"_formDataSaved" easily. Is there every time ,"_formDataSaved" after "storage":{ ?

"storage":{ ... },"_formDataSaved":true
Thank you.

In internet explorer when i open it up and restore my last session it opens up many windows, including my last session, a session i may have had 2 weeks ago and other sessions?

Answer:Internet explorer last browsing session opens up many session points!

I believe this is the explanation of why this happens....

The behavior of Internet Explorer only remembering the very last window closed is by design.
This happens because each new window becomes a new session.
Internet Explorer is designed to remember the last, not necessarily the most important, window/session that was open.

Question: RDP freezes host

Hi Guys,

A few months ago I bought a new Notebook computer at home (Dell Vostro 1320). I've always been able to remote in to home computer with Remote Desktop. ​

However, with this notebook, when I try using RDP, I get the log on screen, but the moment I click OK to log in, the host computer freezes. ​

I did the following testing to try solving the problem, but with no success.​

1. RDP is enabled.​

2. I disabled the firewall.​

3. I took the notebook to my office and tried using RDP inside the domain.​

4. I tried using RDP with another notebook using a simple router with no firewall.​

5. I opened a new clean user, and tried to log in to the new user.​

6. I tried entering a false username or password. In that case, it will give the regular "wrong username" error, but will not freeze.​

I am searching the net for weeks, with no solution, and this makes me real headache.


Answer:RDP freezes host

When RDP freezes, does it mean that you need to force reset the laptop (i.e. a total PC freeze) or is it just the application that freezes?

Are you able to use RDP when booting in to safe mode? Also, does event viewer give any error messages when the crash happens?

This one is very simple to do.

Anyone using http session can be easily hijacked
Just sniff the http session of a website using wireshark
Note the captured Cookie

open a web browser
Add the name and value of captured cookie. save it.

open the website . Now you are logged into someone else account.

You can do anything on that website , which is allowed to be done without asking for username and password. All this just by using the sniffed cookies.
Anyone can sniff on data traveling through hub, switches, router that you are using to connect to internet. They can easily hijack your http sessions.

it seems firefox cannot tell the difference between a crash, or if you just have the browser open while shutting down/rebooting

apparently this is a bug, but im just curious.. is there anyway for the restore session option to still be available if theres a crash, but for the message to not come up if the browsers open and you shutdown/reboot?

Answer:firefox restore session/start new session

That is a bug that has been entered into the bug report that may or may not be corrected in the future. As it stands now, Firefox can't distinguish between a crash and an unexpected closure.
The only options that I know for now is to type about:config in the address bar of Firefox and hit Enter. Go to browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash and set it to false
This will disable the restore session.
You could try this to disable the message, but it will always be disabled until you remove the preference.
Go into about:config and Right-click in the list and select New> String.
Enter browser.sessionstore.restore_prompt_uri as the pref's name.
Enter javascript:window.close(); as the pref's value.
Close Firefox and the message shouldn't appear. If it doesn't work, just delete the preference.

So I was using premiere pro, putting together a video, when all of a sudden windows becomes non-responsive. 20 seconds later windows recovers and tells me there was a video driver crash, and all my video sources disappear from my project. Premiere prompts me to locate the files, so I go looking for them, only to find the hard drive the files were located on has disappeared (No longer visible in disk management, explorer, etc).

My initial reaction was to restart windows...perhaps it was just..something..a restart would fix? . This didn't change anything, so I did a bit of googling. I was unable to find a potential reason, but several people had a similar problem of their hard drives disappearing, and it just took a couple of restarts to fix it. So I restarted again to see if that would solve the problem.

This lead to the situation I am currently in. Now, with the drive plugged in, the BIOS will recognize it, but when Windows starts up, it remains stuck on the black screen with the windows logo and the text "starting windows". Removing the drive solves this issue, and Windows starts fine...but my drive still doesn't work. There were no programs stored on the drive, no drivers..far as I can tell windows should have no reason to refer to information on that drive during start up, its all just stored files.

So....anyone know why? Did the drive die? Is there corrupted data on it? Is it possible to retrieve the data? Any input is appreciated.


Answer:HDD disappeared during windows session, now freezes windows boot.


A few steps you may try:

1. Check in your Advanced Power Plan Settings to see if you may have the "Turn off hard disk after idle" option set to X amount of minutes. If so, change it to "Never"?

Hard Drive - Turn Off Hard Disk After Idle or Never

2. Check to see if there is an issue with the data and/or power cables connected to the HDD.
Try replacing them with different ones to see if the issue remains.

3. Try connecting the HDD to a different SATA port on the motherboard, as there
may be an issue with that particular port?

I plugged the network cable back into the onboard network port and I was able to connect, unfortunately, after a short amount of time the computer freezes.

Small office setup with a wireless modem/router. We have two computers that are identical HP Pavilion a6807c PCs running Vista Home Premium. Other computers in the office are a bit older and run either XP or Vista.

Just purchased a new HP Officejet 7000 printer and connected it via a USB to one of the HP Pavilion Vista computers (which I will refer to as HP1). The printer works fine on HP1 using the direct USB connection.

Set printer sharing, file sharing, and even public sharing on both HP computers (HP1 and the other one I will refer to as HP2). Workgroup name is the same. Can access HP1 and see the HP printer on HP1 from other computers in the office. However, when I try to connect to the printer from HP2 to HP1, it locks up HP1 and HP1 requires a hard reset. I tried installing the software/drivers on HP2, but HP2 still tries to install the drivers from HP1.

I am not sure its a problem with HP1 as much as it is a Vista issue. The reason I say this is because I have been able to successfully use an XP computer (XP3) to connect and print to the Officejet on HP1.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I need help, not 30 lashes with a wet noodle. I feel stupid enough already.

I think I have a failed uninstall of Norton Internet Securities 2004 and I may not have completely removed MSN 9.0 either. The machine was handed down to me from my fifteen year old daughter, who feels that it has "a bunch of Trojans".

It is a Presario S5000NX running WinXP SP2. It has two XP clients, one of which can access the internet and be seen (usually) by other machines. The 95 client can be seen by all machines but cannot see any of them. The samba (Mandrake 10.1) client can't be seen but can (usually) see the host, 95 client, and one XP client, and can access the internet. The other XP client cannot be seen or go online, but can (usually) access files from (some of) the other computers. The samba client double-boots in Win2000 and can then access the host, 95 client, and accessible XP client, but cannot be seen. The 95 client cannot access the internet.

This ethernet LAN connectivity is subject to change without notice or apparent reason.

It is currently running AVG free and Sygate free; whenever I try to install stronger security software, I lose network connectivity (which is hardly perfect in the first place) and have to run an XP system restore.

I can also scan across the network with NOD32 on a client computer. Neither it nor AVG nor Ad-Aware nor Spybot turn anything up.

I have a host-host VPN set up between a Cisco SR520 router and a PIX 515E. Connection at my end is AT&T DSL, static IP, netopia DSL modem. Don't know the service at the other end, but I do know it is a web hosting company.

I can ping the designated host computer at the other end via the VPN tunnel. They cannot reliably ping my end. If I have ping -t running to the other end, a ping coming my way works. Otherwise, not. The last two Cisco techs I have spoken with have no clue (and they have logged into both routers to examine the configuration).

Early on, we had a 2Wire DSL modem. AT&T acknowledged that its SPI firewall can be problematic. They recommended the netopia as being more transparent. Its firewall has been totally disabled.


Answer:Host - Host VPN not symetric

When you can't ping through the tunnel, how long is it after the last session through the tunnel? Did you do a show crypto isakmp sa to see if the tunnel is still up? Depending on the settings of the keep alives and hellos over the tunnel, the tunnel could have been brought down due to inactivity. But normally, the tunnel should just re-establish itself on the next keep alive/hello interval. If the tunnel is down, it will take a minute or so before traffic moves across the tunnel again due to the overhead of the tunnel being brought up.

What is your exact network layout? Are you doing a remote VPN configuration or a LAN to LAN (site to site) configuration where the VPN tunnel is between the SR520 and the 515E. The above assumes you are doing a LAN to LAN tunnel. Also, is the DSL modem you have bridged or still operating as a router. If it is still operating as a router, you should turn the modem into a pure modem and not a modem/router.

If you're using Nero, you can try installing Multimounter which will allow you to view the various sessions:

Question: Session Gap?

I've tried using Nero and other programs to burn a mixed audio/data CD. Apparently it's done with two sessions. Nero does this automatically. Other programs make you perform both sessions. The disks are okay. First session is read only as audio by older CD-ROMs. The data is read in Windows. But the thing is, when checked for a surface scan using CD Speed, the utility program, there's always a gap of unformatted or red or 'bad' sectors following the last audio track and prior to the data.

I've asked various people who ought to be knowledgeable - are all these bad sectors supposed to be there in this sort of 'mode 2 xa', multi-session 'enhanced CD'? Is it, basically, just a separation between the audio session and the data session? for maybe 100 or so frames/sectors? No one seems to know, at least that I've asked. Maybe it's not 'red book', or 'yellow' book, or whatever, or maybe it is?

Speaking of 'books', I do notice that the CD-writer slows down after writing the audio. I've been told that the CD-writer isn't supposed to change speed that much, or else it doesn't conform to these book standards. But it does momentarily slow down, then speed up again, with various CD-burning programs, not just one.

Answer:Session Gap?

I guess I'll answer my own question, since perhaps no one here knows.

It's not a slow-down or some underrun problem. In this Mode 2, multi-session 'enhanced CD' (ECD), there are about 2 and a half minutes of garbage, basically, written by all software - which they don't bother telling you about. All those 'bad sectors', are literally supposed to be there at the end of the last track, and at the beginning of the final track with all the data.

So a CD Speed reports it as this block of 'red'. And it fails the disc, of course. But those 'bad sectors' - are supposedly to be there in this ECD sort of multi-session burn.

Answer:Is it possible to have a multi-session with XP's

Exactly the same as the retail version [Original Equipment Manufacturer]is what OEM stands for, and in general is hardware/software sold to system builders/suppliers for distribution with a new PC.Most suppliers will sell you an OEM version of software if you buy a small hardware item at the same time. Many will sell the software without these restrictions applied.In general, buy the OEM version and save yourself a fair bit of money. The main concern is that the supplier is responsible and not the manufacturer for help with any setting up of hardware/software. This will in most cases not present any problems, especially with software. j.

Answer:PHP Session Question

PHP can only save the data if the form is submitted. But once the form field's value is in a variable, yes you can pre-populate a textbox with it.
If the person's name was in a session variable called NAME, you could use this for your textbox.

I have crucial data backed up on a DVD, however I can't access the files now that I need them. The DVD is recognized as most software as "blank" or "empty", however I know the data was burnt. When I burnt the DVD, everything seemed to work including the lead-out and "close session", but apparently there was a problem that was undetected at the time.

If I open something like Nero and try to continue a multisession disc, I can choose to continue from the one "session" that was written to the disc, however I still can't add anything or close this current "open" session. Anything I try seems to give one error or another, usually something to the effect of "can not close a disc-at-once session".

Please help! I need these files badly! Thank you!

I call session_start(); at the start of every page to call the session, but it would seem like every time i call it, instead of recognizing the presence of the session that was already started, it starts a new session, so i can never maintain a session.

When i used opera to check, there IS a cookie that stores the value for the session.

I didn't not configure any PHP settings.

Is there anything i can do to maintain a session?

Answer:PHP Maintaining a session

How is PHP set to save sessions? Normally you have to define a tmp directory to store the files on the server side. If you have have write access or the directory defined in the php.ini does not exist it will not be able to save the sessions on the server side.

Check that the php.ini matches what you think it supposed to be going on.

Question: IE 9 session issue

When I use more than one instance of the software then it needs to log into different yahoo mail accounts at the same time. I have two laptops - both running Win7 and the latest version of IE9. On one of them, the software is logging into different yahoo mail accounts without any problems and without interrupting each other, but on the other it can be logged in one account at a time. When it tries to log into another account, the other gets interrupted and logs out. I guess this has something to do with cookies and IE settings.

Answer:Session Cookies

session cookies (I won't delve into the technicalities) are similar to normal cookies in that they have the same settings in the internet explorer.

Just go to Tools->internet options->privacy tab->click on 'default'->apply->ok.

If that does not help lower down your cookie setting to 'low' (drag the vertical marker all the way down to the bottom) so that it "Accepts all cookies".

Also do check whether your system clock shows current time and date.

Why is it saying that? Did I do something to make it do that?
Thanks for your help!

Answer:session time out

Usually on a site where there is shopping users that have been idle for too long will have their sessions dropped. There are a few reasons to this. One...I would think it's a good idea to drop people that have been idle to long to free up server resources for others. Two, it's a security precaution...and idle computer could be someone that logged on to the site and walked away from their computer leaving it open for other to come along and charge things to their account.

This week I keep getting booted off the internet. I keep getting not connected to the internet. If I'm connected with the verizon or the MSN part. The messenger keeps shutting itself on and off. The modem lights, there are three, power, dsl, ethernet. I notice the DSL light is flickering. I got an error your PPP session has been disconnected. I called verizon they said its a issue with there area. After it still wasnt fixed I called again. They reset my modem after they had me go to there web site it said not working. The modem is an Westell model 2200. I have windows xp. This ran fine when I got this about two months ago. Now there sending me a new modem. Is there anything else I should be looking at before I get this modem? For example a setting on my computer? I had a Trogen and did change some settings (verizon is aware of it) for security. I have no firewall running with my computer. I was just wondering if I should check anything else. I'm so upset at this.


Answer:PPP session error

I've had similar problems with my sharkfin modem for cable. For about 2 weeks, I had intermittent internet access. The cable company said it was a problem on their end (solar flare stuff). Anyway, after they said it was fixed, I had some more issues.

I've ran Ad-Aware and SpyBot S&D and found a good bit of spyware and malware. After getting rid of that junk, my browser did not act up (until I got more of the junk). I regularly run these, and some other, to find and get rid of spyware (along with Norton for virii).

If you have these, run them and see what they can find. I also recommend HijackThis! and Spyware Blaster.

Answer:restore to last session

If you want to power down your computer without losing whatever you have open, use the Hibernate feature to turn off in the first place. If you are referring to when the computer turns off without you're intending to turn it off, there is nothing you can do to guarantee that you get the screens back.

Hello, if I had a Blu Ray burner, could I burn a multi-session disk and keep adding little bits here and there, or are Blu Ray burners not reliable enough yet?

Thanks, Catlover

Answer:Multi-session Blu Ray?

Blu-ray disks use the UDF file system, implemented originally to allow drag-and-drop to optical disks (among other reasons). It is possible to create multisession Blu-rays, but just like on DVD's multisession is not a reasonable choice for most purposes. The file overhead is large, so each "session" consumes more of the disk space to the point where its usable space becomes significantly smaller. Unclosed disks cannot be read on other machines.

As always, it is better to make a disk all at once when the files are ready to be burned.

Hi all, ive got some dvd's someone from work lent me but i cant open them on my computer, Ive figured out the problem is that he didn't close the session after he burnt them.
Just wondering if it is possible to close the session on my computer, when i try open the disk i get a error so i cant get into the DVD its self.

Im running XP pro SP3

I took 1 of the disks to a friends place ( hes on vista ) & he could open the dvd & close the session by going into the right click menu, that DVD now works on my computer just wanting to not have to take all the disks ( about 50 ) round there & do it to each of them.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Answer:Need help to close session on DVD

Hello!If you have a video editing application, such as Final Cut Pro, Pinnacle, or Avid--then you may be able to open them and finalize them.I have worked in Final Cut Pro and Pinnacle, and have had success finalizing DVDs, even after they are ejected, then replaced in to the computer.Hope it works out for you! edit: your friend's computer may have encrypted the DVD until it gets finalized.

Question: Win session logger

I am currently running Webroot Internet Security Essentials and have repeatedly quarantined a "win session logger." When I click on my QUARANTINE tab and select that item to be deleted, it invariably winds up there again. I am also noticing several items that are "quarantined and deleted," on my scan log several days in a row. I don't know if the system is failing to totally delete them or no. Any help with these problems would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
