comment Network corruption - corrupt downloads, corrupt streams, etc
I'm not sure my network adapter supports forcing the link speed down - I looked up instructions for how to do it but apparently my NIC doesn't support the relevant property.

No config changes. I did discover a switch hanging, suspended by routers - the boxes it was stacked on partially collapsed. I have no clue how long it's been like that, but I'm guessing that's what caused the problem. Trying to work out which cables to replace is going to be a pain but hopefully that'll resolve it. Interestingly, perfmon didn't pick up packet errors as they occurred - not sure what that says about the problem. I'll try forcing the speed down and see if that helps - thanks!

Thanks - I don't have immediate access to other Windows boxes, but I can try that eventually. I'm actually starting to wonder if my ISP is to blame, since I've been seeing download corruption on at least two machines at home.

I searched my registry, and there is only one key named "Certificate", at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Cryptography\Providers\Trust\Certificate. There are a number of subfolders of this, each of which is presumably a cert. I could delete this, I suppose...do you think there's any chance that doing so would help?

Thanks, but I don't think my Windows installation is broken. Is it possible I'm just not configured to use certs for RD auth? I ask because I've never done any cert exchange, and I enter the Windows password of my account on the remote machine when connecting remotely. Or are the certs used by my local machine to auth the remote machine and prevent MITM attacks?

Correct, I do not have a Certificate key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TermService\Parameters on either machine. The only keys in that folder are (Default), ServiceDll, and ServiceDllUnloadOnStop - this is true on both machines. The (Default) value for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\ was already blank on both machines.

Thanks, that's actually what I was referring to when I mentioned the x509 thing. That solves a slightly different error, and in any case, I didn't even have that key in the first place.
