Windows 7 Professional unable to Connect Remote Desktop

Recently installed new Windows 7.0 professional edition and now whenever I try to remote desktop it’s throws error like following

An authentication error has occurred.

The requested security package does not exist

so I had to search on google an I found that the problem is due to some missing parameters in the Registry.

Apparently one of the sys admins deployed an sms package that removed some settings from this key:

HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\control\lsa\security packages

It should have these values: kerberos msv1_0 schannel wdigest tspkg pku2u

The tskpkg and pku2u values were missing.

After adding them and rebooting and I can RDP to 2008 servers.
