Remote desktop from Windows Vista slow or not working?

I use a lot of remote desktop to manage access to clients or servers. But after installing Windows Vista on my computer, this has been virtually impossible. When I tried to remotely connect it got the connection, but it slowed down or completely froze so it wasn't possible to even log on.

Finally I've found a solution for the slow remote desktop problem here.

It was needed to run the command prompt as administrator and disable auto tuning for the TCP/IP receive window. If you're having the same problem use command

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

To reenable it enter

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal

And remote desktop magically started working!

Thanks, This saved my remote session work defragging the exchange server. It would do strange things when I typed some keys like e would open a windows explorer window! This seems to have fixed it.
