There are plenty of scatterbrained ideas as to why this error occurs. I have tried all the fixes on the internet none of which worked. However, the indication that it is something to do with a RDP or VNC connection prompted me to try stopping my DameWare daemon and wouldn’t you know, it stopped.

So before you tear your hair out. Try to think of ANY remote access software you are running, inbound or outbound and shut it down. Odds are, it will fix your problem as it did mine.
