Windows 7: Remote Desktop Missing In Remote Settings Screen

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Remote Desktop Missing In Remote Settings Screen


I've searched the internet and I can't find a solution. I've long been using Windows 7 and never had any problems with Remote Desktop from outside my network however I don't use it frequently so it is several months since I last used it.

When I right click on Computer -> Properties and Remote Settings

The lower part of the screen where you specify your remote desktop settings is missing. The issues that I've seen regarding this have two solutions typically.

1) The TermService is not running. It is my case.
2) That the DWord value should be set to 0 in the registry for tfDenyTSConnections

I have attached a screenshot confirming all this.

Anybody any advice as to what to try next?

Apologies tomoerello I thought I had marked this as solved yesterday. On doing a bit more googling I found out that if something goes wrong with your windows activation that it can cause this problem some times. My Windows 7 Ultimate was showing as being activated and it's about 5 months since I last did a clean install on my computer so I didn't hold out any hope but upon reactivating and rebooting the remote desktop section came back. Very odd but glad to have it working again.
