    I used to have an icon for Remote Desktop on my WinXP SP3 PC.
    Yesterday it simply was not there. I did a search for it and cannot
    find it anywhere, I assume I need to reinstall it somehow. I don't
    have the Windows CD, my machine simply came with it loaded. I looked
    online and found WindowsXP-KB925876-x86-ENU.exe, but when I run it I
    get the error - Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of
    this system
    is newer than the update you are applying. There is no need to install
    this update.

    Is there some other way to get this to install? I know I've had to do
    it before, about a year ago it seems like the same thing happened but
    I don't recal it being hard to get it back on my system.

    Start button --> RUN --> type in:
    mstsc
    --> Click OK.

    Remote Desktop Client run?
