Logging off causes Server 2003 to freeze

Asked By 7060 points N/A Posted on -

My network has 6 computers. Recently, the network freezes when a client terminal logs off. This happened 3 times now.

I initially used USERENV 1058 and 1030. I have also made corrections in the registry.

Don't know what else to try.

Logging off causes Server 2003 to freeze


The cause of this problem might be the Terminal Services session inability to shut down completely.

The I/ORequest Package that waits for redirection may prevent a program from closing thus  the session cannot  shut down until this program is closed. This has a negative effect on the entire network.

A hotfix is a most likely solution for this problem, you can download it from Microsoft.com.

Here's the contact details for more on this problem: https://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support

Make sure to restart the server after applying the hotfix.

Hello there,

I think, your network freezes due to excessive network traffic or slow connection. This can also be happened when a server administrator has set a time period limit for total logon time.

To solve this problem, use troubleshooting to reconnect your network server to save money and time. 

If this won’t help, then you should update your network driver by following the steps below:

1. Unplug your all networking equipment and shut down all network computers.

2. Wait 30 to 40 seconds and restart everything.

3. If this won’t resolve your issue, then click “Start” and then “Run” on any network computer.

4. Type “cmd” and press “Enter”.

5. Then type "ipconfig /release", press "Enter and " type "ipconfig /renew" and press "Enter" again. This will resets the network software connection.

6. Repeat on all the computers.

7. For safety against hardware failure, replace the current network router with a working replacement.

8. Then go to your “network Adapters” (Click "Start > Control Panel > Device Manager > Network Adapters).

9. Update your driver from network card.

Hope this will prevent the network freezing.

Thank You.
