By logging in to Windows 7 by Remote Desktop Connection from another computer, some times Windows does not select the correct user account. I can log in but all the specific user setting (programs, ODBC's etc.) can not be found. Does anyone have this or similar problem? Restarting Windows fixes this problem, but then it turns up again without any specific reason.

When using Remote Desktop, you have the option to choose your login credentials from the menu itself. Make sure those are set properly to remember the account/password you want to use.

To do so:

Click Start - All Programs - Accessories - Remote Desktop Connection.

Then, choose that little "Options" down arrow to access the additional login features. Uncheck "Always ask for credentials" first. Then, choose the computer you login to, and then choose Edit for your credentials. From there, it should prompt you for a Username and Password.

If you do this all correctly, it should save your login info for the particular destination PC you are connecting to remotely.
