Remote Desktop Connection (RDP) becomes extremely slow after installing the “Intel Smart Connect Technology” update
I was running some optional Windows Updates this morning and after I was done I noticed that my remote desktop connections become extremely slow. Our internet at my office has always been a bit up and down so I assumed it was some temporary issue. But it stayed there and then I looked at Windows Update History and saw this “Intel Smart Connect Technology” and just because it had the word “Connect” word in it I tried to do a rollback on it.
Baam! As soon as I restarted everything worked fine. So just a tip, beware of the “Intel Smart Connect Technology” update if you are using RDP. I also had some issues with Skype but I do not know if that was related.
