Has anyone ran into this?

I will remote into my work PC from my home PC and everything works great. But, the next day or next time I go to use my work PC my mouse or keyboard are unresponsive. I actually have to restart my PC to get them to start working again. Its the same wither I use wireless or corded mice.

Any ideas?






Take a look at this hotfix:


From above link:

The issue occurs because the remote desktop ActiveX object does not deactivate the focus of the remote desktop session when the focus is lost. Because the focus is still activated, the remote desktop ActiveX object cannot set the focus of the remote desktop session again when you change the focus back to the session.

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go

    Any recommendations? Cheers!

  3. There was no stir at all in dealing with my end and the member of pole was uncommonly courteous and productive and she went upstairs and beyond to alleviate, so if anyone in generic zithromax azithromycin management reads this, then please pass on my thanks, and if there is any award or gain design then she should decidedly be considered.
