Vista RDP (mstsc) blank/black screen and ATBroker.exe error - the workround

Oh man, this has haunted me - when working away I VPN and remote onto my workstation at my home office and then go out to clients from there - nice and secure and allows me to keep sessions on a stable link rather than 3g or slower adsl.

Every now and again I get a black screen and then a ATBroker.exe error and I can do nothing else.

This blog article is an absolute life saver with a workround: https://blogs.msdn.com/spatdsg/archive/2007/03/14/atbroker-exe-application-error.aspx

CTRL ALT END - who'd have thought it and then (usually) you have to select logoff; well - thats better than remote booting a machine which in my case doesn't always come back up automatically!
