SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. You enable the "Interactive logon: Require smart card" security setting on your Microsoft Windows XP-based computer so that users have to use a smart card to log on to the local computer. To do this, you follow the steps that are described in the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
834875  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834875/ ) Update for the "Interactive logon: Require smart card" security setting in Windows XP
After you enable the security setting, users cannot log on to your computer by using Remote Assistance. When a user on a remote computer tries to log on to your computer by using Remote Assistance, the user receives the following message:
Unable to log you on because it is required that you use a smart card to log on, please contact your administrator

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the "Interactive logon: Require smart card" security setting in the update that is documented in Knowledge Base article 834875 also applies to the Remote Assistance user account.
