I should point out that the title is slightly misleading due to not having any quotes in it… It should strictly read: “Remote Desktop Connection has stopped working” error when session ends after installing latest nVidia driver update. But I thought that was perhaps a bit long winded… Remote Desktop Connection does still work.
I updated to version 310.70 of the nVidia graphics drivers (PC is Windows 7 64-bit, GeForce 9400 GT) and have started getting the following error every time a Remote Desktop Connection session closes – whether I log off the remote desktop or disconnect.
Update 2012-01-11: I noticed version 310.90 was release and updated to that – same problem.
Remote Desktop Connection
Remote Desktop Connection has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.
Additionally, the following two errors are logged in the Application event log:

Have logged this as a fault with nVidia.
Update 2013-01-24: Have tried the later 310.90 driver and get the same problem. At nVidia’s suggestion I installed an older driver, v258.96 and am not getting the errors. Have fed this back to nVidia.
Update 2013-02-04: I’ve discovered that the /multimon command line switch for mstsc.exe (e.g. mstsc.exe /multimon /v:<computername>) does NOT give the error when that session ends. Likewise adding the line “use multimon:i:1” in a RDP file has the same effect.
