    ok, so now have a weird on
    had some spyware on windows 2003 server (terminal server)
    rebooted
    now, can not remain connected to the server at all
    as soon as i log in as any user, it logs in, i can see application (known one) running , as it should be and it immediately
    disconnects the session message comes up about closing the session
    can not log in as regular rdp user , administrator or through console
    connects, see desktop for about half second and them closes the connection out

    any magically things i can try to get this going again

    i don't have direct access to the server to log in locally
    i can access the shares on the server and i can access hidden shares and remotely connect to the registry

    any tips..............anyone !!

    So, had someone who was physically in front of the server trying to log in locally into the computer, and it does the exact same thing

    press ctrl + alt + del
    enter in administrator / password
    logs in for split second and then comes up with Closing network connection and
    then goes back to Press ctrl + alt +del screen again

    Ok, so got it working again

    first since i was not at the location, i had to connect to the server from another PC on the same network the server was at.

    I had to first go into regedit (on the computer)
    connect to network registry (in regedit , go to file, connect network registry )
    then i had to go to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
    look for
    userinit
    double click on this, and the path I had in there was totally incorrect going to documents and settings.....
    userinit = C:\Windows\system32\userinit.exe,
    exitted the registry
    had someone physically at the office, power off the server and turn it back on
    now can both log in locally and log in remotely through rdp


    Hope this helps someone else
    this was caused by some spyware /malware/virus that was on server BTW
