Remote control of 2008 terminal server sessions

By jason_k ·
I have looked everywhere for a workaround to this issue, but to no avail.

I have a 2008 standard server, running the Terminal Server role. Just upgraded from 2003 after a bit of lightning damage....but don't get me started on that.
Previously, with the 2003 server, I could remote control a users session should I need to for any reason.

With the 2008 server, it seems that if either I or the user to be remote controlled is running RDC 7 (windows 7 clients), when I try to remote control it disconnects that user, and throws up an error.

In event viewer, I get event ID 50:
"The RDP protocol component "DATA ENCRYPTION" detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client."

The only info I can find relates to 2000/2003 servers.

Any help appreciated!
