Because of an error in data encryption, this session will end.

When trying to connect to a computer over RDP (remote desktop) you get the following message

“Because of an error in data encryption, this session will end. Please try connecting to the remote computer again.”

Solution:

On the computer that is giving the error:
1. Click start > run type ‘regedit’.
2. Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\TermService\Parameters
3. Under this registry subkey, delete the following values:
* Certificate
* X509 Certificate
* X509 Certificate ID
4. Quit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
