So you are lauching RDP from w7 (mstsc), and trying to RDP to XP (lets do that if you haven't).

The little Option button on the RDP window (bottom left), press that and what do you u see?

aem - He Compter Name of the XP Laptop is "DanLaptop". The Computer name of the Windows 7 Laptop is "Jessica-Laptop". The admin username on the XP Laptop is "Dan York". The Admin username on the Windows 7 Laptop is "Jessica".

I did as you instructed but again came up with the same error. (Please see pic below). I also tried with just the desitination (the XP Laptop) Computer name in the User Name spot, and just the admin username of the destination computerin the User Name spot as well.

We are really at the end of this (or at least i am lol). Maybe double check the comp name and userid of the XP machine. Make sure it's the userid (not necessary usur name). But yeh, it should work with computername(xp)\userid(xp).
