I'm having trouble loging into my account using remote desktop. When I try to log in it says "The system could not log you on. Make sure your username and domain are correct...". I have have double checked username/password and that's not the problem. But I can log into my computer using the Administrator account so it is some setting on my account.

I enabled remote desktop by my computer->properties->remote and added my account to the remote user list. My account is also a member of the group "Administrators" and "Remote Desktop Users".

Any ideas?
Thanks!

check to make sure the firewall isn't preventing issues. Also have you tried restarting the remote pc?

yep, I've restarted multiple times. I also uninstalled my antivirus and disabled windows firewall (leaving no other security applications on my computer) and it still wouldn't all my user to log in. I then created a new administrator account and that one works fine, so I think there is just something wrong with my account. I'll probably just transfer all my files to the new account.

creating a new account was going to be my next suggestion. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
