remote desktop window is blank on client after upgrading upgrade win 7

Client is my laptop; remote is my desktop. After I upgraded my desktop to win 7 when I do a remote desktop connect the connection occurs but the window is blank or light blue. Any suggestions?

So I figured out my first problem…disable UAC. Once done desktop control works fine while I’m at home :slight_smile: :. When I try remote desktop from a remote location I get the blank blue screen again :(. Could this be a firewall setting? Which one?
