Who is blocking the remote desktop connection?
So I have a PC in my office and I used to remotely connect to it from home but then I installed the fsecure on the PC and I was not able to connect anymore. I uninstalled the fsecure completely and even restarted the PC but still I cannot connect remotely!
I was wondering if there is any tool to allow me trace which process is blocking the remote access to my PC.
Please help. Thank you

Try the uninstall tool....Also, check your Router to see if it used uPNP to set a rule without you knowing on setup.....

Hi there BB,
Bin so please forgive............ which machine was FSecure installed on?
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

hahaha it was installed on the PC in my office and now is not anymore. I used to connect from my laptop at home to that PC.

Fact2: I just noticed something else has happened at the same time! I had McAfee already installed on the Win 7 system on the PC. Apparently it has a trial period of one year or something which is gone so when I went back to check the McAfee settings I was not able to do that. It asked me to upgrade which obviously I declined and then decided to uninstall McAfee as well and did so and restarted the PC. Still, I cannot connect remotely :| .
The error I get now is " This computer can't connect to the remote computer. Try connecting again. If the problem continues, contact the owner of the remote computer or your network administrator."
The error I used to get before these uninstallations was something like the remote computer does not allow remote connections and contact the administrator or something!!!!

What remote client are you using? mswin factory default, virtual, some other 3rd party ware?

Sorry I don't know! The PC has Win7 installed on and I have Vista at home so just go to the start menu, type "remote" and click on "remote desktop connection" that's all what I do
