Windows 7: Host Computer not resetting after a remote user exits

Host Computer not resetting after a remote user exits

Hello all. Here's my problem(s). I am running an hp a 250n with 4gb of ram with win 7 32 bit home premium as my host computer for remote desktop connection. The 3 machines I am creating remote connections from are all running win 7 ultimate 64bit. the host computer is set up with the patch to run concurrent sessions, and it does allow each of the machines in even while there is a user on the host computer. (that's what it's supposed to do and it does it just fine) The problem(s) begin when some one exits a remote session and then wants to reconnect later. The remote computer can close the session on their end with no ill effects, but the host computer continues to treat the remote computer as if it is still logged on for the user, and will not allow the user to establish a connection again until the host computer is restarted. Which brings us to the other end of the problem. When you attempt to log off or otherwise restart the host computer it tells you that other users are still logged on and they will lose information if you continue and you have to confirm you want to continue. after confirmation, the host computer shows the logging off screen, and proceeds no further until you do a hard reset with the power button. As a side note, the 3 other machines can all host and remote to each other w/out the host problems the host computer is having. Additional information in anticipation of questions you may ask. The host computer is hardwired into a netgear WGT624v4 router which the other 3 machines access wirelessly. Port forwarding has been setup on the router for port 3389, and windows firewall has been setup to allow access through port 3389 as well. At this point, I am at my wits and technical abilities end, so any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
