Remote Desktop will not Connect



Hi guys,

I am having a problem connecting to a Windows XP Proffessional SP3 box via
remote desktop. Although nothing appears to have changed it has stopped
working. I have checked and disabled the firewall same result.

Message on client machine simply states thatit cannot connect at this time.
Try again later. When I checked the host machine I noticed tha the terminla
servies service was not running and I cannot get it to start (it starts then
immediately stops again) when I try to make an out going remote desktop
connection it crashed with a memory address error.

Short of reinstalling the OS (last resort) is there anything elase I should
be trying?

Thanks Stuart
