Remote Desktop Connection but no more keyboard?

Hi All,

This morning I was working in eplorer to move some files, and Windows 7 asked me if I wanted to turn on filtering mode, and I confirmed.

Now when I use my remote desktop session from a windows xp machine that has always worked, I now only have control with my mouse, but no more keyboard input.

I do not know if the filtering mode has anything to do with it, but I cannot figure out why I cannot use my keyboard anymore in RDP. Funny thing is, it DOES work when I login to windows 7, I can type my password but when the desktop is there, I cannot use the keyboard anymore..

Any suggestions anyone?

Seems like the filtering thing that windows 7 proposed to activate for me this morning is the reason my keyboard wasnt responding in RDP anymore, I discovered a new icon that represented the filtering that was turned on, when I switched it off, my keyboard started working again
