I have recently created a new virtual machine (running on VMWare ESXi) running Windows Server 2008 R2. I have noticed that the machine has been running slowing and looking in Task Manager I see about 25 instances of a process "rdpthread.exe" running with user ASP.NET which is using 100% CPU....any ideas?
