Almost gave it 1 star, then I resolved the problem...
I almost gave this a 1 star but one last ditch effort I solved the problem. I was having a dual monitor issue where it would extend the screen to my second monitor and cut off my remote computer so I could only see a small portion. The solution is to edit your desktop connection setup and uncheck USE ALL MONITORS. This fixed all my problems and I am back in play. The connection is quick and the response is smooth.
