When you use a RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) connection from client Workstations, and if you don’t have to keep those histories since, the RDP connection on the workstations are not that secure.

So, you can simply use the Registry Editor to clear the cached connections. Just follow the steps below;

1. Go to
Start -> Run -> Regedit

2. And navigate to
HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Microsoft -> Terminal Server Client -> Default and Server

3. Delete the Strings under Default and Sub Directories under Servers

You are done!

This will work on XP, Server 2003, Win7 and so on. :D

Edit by paws before editing the Registry it's important to back it up.... even a small mistake when editing the Registry could make for severe problems...even preventing your computer from starting up.... Erunt is good and a creating a System Restore Point is also a wise step.
