Windows 7: No Remote Desktop, No User Switching

No Remote Desktop, No User Switching

I recently reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate. After reinstalling and re-creating the user accounts I noticed that I could no longer use this PC as a host for Remote Desktop as I had before.

Also, I can no longer switch users, instead I have to Log off each time a user wants to log on.

I have done the gpedit.msc (policies/templates "hide entry points for fast user switching" which is disabled.

I have also added a registry HideFastUserSwitching. These two tips are offered in a few places.

I have also deleted the original user accounts and remade them just in case there was a corruption. I keep all data in a data partition so I just point the newly created accounts back to that partition. Could that have something wrong with it?

Any Ideas on what else I should do?
